The Online News Association (ONA) is accepting entries for the 2015 Online Journalism Awards recognizing excellence in digital reporting.
This year, ONA is debuting three new categories: the James Foley Award for Conflict Reporting, sports journalism and "Pro-Am," which will recognize work done by students in an academic environment who collaborate with or receive compensation or support from a professional media outlet.
Other award categories include: breaking news, planned news/events, explanatory reporting, topical reporting, online commentary, feature, student projects, visual digital storytelling, technical innovation, innovative investigative journalism, public service and general excellence in online journalism.
Of the 37 awards, 10 offer a total of US$60,000 in prize money, including US$15,000 for two awards for investigative data journalism.
Awards will be given in September at the Online News Association Conference & Awards Banquet in Los Angeles. The OJAs, launched in 2000, are the only comprehensive set of journalism prizes honoring excellence in digital journalism. You can view a list of the 2014 winners here.
Entries must have published between June 16, 2014 and May 15, 2015. Works may be submitted in any language, however English translations are strongly recommended.
The deadline is May 29. The entry fee is US$100 for ONA members, US$175 for non-members, US$15 for student members and US$50 for student non-members.
