Multimedia Prize Goes To Election Coverage

Reuters has awarded its annual multimedia prize to the team which provided coverage of last year’s presidential election.

The Multimedia Storytelling of the Year title was given to the team in recognition of the innovative content produced to tell the story of the historic race for the White House.

Name-checked in the winner’s profile were the Tales from the Trail election blog, which was a regular favourite among visitors to Reuters.com, and its post-election Postcards to the President.

The Trail blog included a special feature during party conventions hosting vlog posts from delegates.

Also mentioned were the slideshows, timelines, videos and factboxes produced by the team.

The Reuters 2008 Journalists of the Year Awards presents a total of ten prizes to its staff for examples of journalistic excellence.

Other categories include: Video Story of the Year; Scoop of the Year, Video Journalist of the Year and the Editor’s Choice Award.
