2002 EOJ Awards launched
Call for entries to the NetMedia European Online Journalism Awards
by Milverton Wallace firstname.lastname@example.org
01/03/02): The 2002 European Online Journalism Awards Awards, a
competition to reward excellence in web journalism, was launched today
The Awards, now in their fourth year, were set up in recognition of the
huge changes online publishing is making to journalism and were the
first awards to honour the work of online journalists.
The competition is open to all European journalists and the judges are
drawn from leading media houses across the continent. The EOJ Awards are
administered by a supervisory board consisting of leading journalism
educators from across the continent.
Awards will be offered in 21 categories (See Notes for Editors).
This year's competition will be audited by the electronic division of
the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABCe).
Milverton Wallace, founder and organiser of the EOJ Awards, said
the recent upheavals in the online media sector serve to reinforce the
need for the profession to produce more journalists with a practical
understanding of what Internet media technologies are capable of and how
to use them to
produce new and exciting journalism services for our readers and viewers.
"The aim of these awards is to showcase excellent examples of good
stories told with the tools of the Internet and to help accelerate the
development and promotion of best practice in online journalism among
European journalists," he said.
Deadline for submission of entries is 31 May 2002.
