A new web journalism prize

With the rise of digital technology, technological developments and changes in the way in which news is broadcast, new forms of narration have been created. There has been a vast increase in the number of multimedia projects in recent years, with the introduction of web documentaries, short multimedia works, video-graphics, etc. These new formats provide opportunities for finding out about international news in other ways (new information methods, new audiences). The new Web Journalism Award, sponsored by Nikon,  will reward these new types of multimedia reporting.
