Del

WASHINGTON, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Finalists for the 2018 Online Journalism Awards, representing a wide range of local and international media, nonprofit, public, academic and emerging technology organizations, were announced today by the Online News Association.

Thirteen of the awards come with $58,500 in prize money, courtesy of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Gannett Foundation , the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications and Journalism 360. These awards honor data journalism, visual digital storytelling, investigative journalism, immersive storytelling, public service, technical innovation, student journalism and general excellence.

This year’s awards introduced a new category for Excellence in Collaboration and Partnerships, honoring newsrooms and companies who formed innovative partnerships or collaborations to cover a topic or story with a digital focus. In addition, the General Excellence category now has a micro size group for newsrooms with 15 or fewer employees, thanks to the support of the Democracy Fund.

A special selection committee also granted the James Foley Award for Conflict Reporting to photojournalist Nicole Tung. She is the fourth recipient of the award, which honors journalists reporting under the most challenging conditions. Tung has covered social and conflict-related issues in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, including the conflicts in Libya and Syria, violence against women in Turkey and the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

"The selection committee was impressed by the power and variety of imagery Nicole has captured in conflict zones on multiple continents, and by her consistent focus on the humanity of her subjects,” said Eric Carvin, Social Media Editor at The Associated Press and chair of the selection committee. “Importantly, she's also been deeply involved in advocating for freelancer rights and safety, and has skillfully used her social presence to both bring attention to those issues and showcase her powerful visual journalism. Nicole knew Jim Foley well, and has been committed to carrying his legacy forward. We're proud and humbled to celebrate her stunning work, as well as her dedication to the well-being of journalists toiling under the most challenging of circumstances.”

The 2018 winners — including winners of the Rich Jaroslovsky Founder Award and the new ONA Community Award — will be announced at the Online News Association Conference and Online Journalism Awards Banquet on Saturday, Sept. 15, in Austin, Texas.
