niemanlab-online-journalism-awardOn Saturday, a few hundred journalists, technologists, business-side types, and academics gathered in Atlanta to give out this year’s Online Journalism Awards.

The Guardian won two awards for its Snowden-driven series on surveillance, and both The Boston Globe and the Boston University News Service took home two prizes for their marathon bombing coverage. The New York Times won three prizes, with one of them going to D3.js, the data visualization SVG engine that’s increasingly taking over the web. (D3 is an open source project built by the brilliant Mike Bostock, whose day job is at the Times. I haven’t checked the archives, but I have to imagine it’s the first JavaScript library to take home a major journalism prize.)

Black Gold Boom, which we wrote about in January, won an award, which Zeega shared in. “Snow Fall” won for large feature, surprising few, and other news orgs we’ve written a lot about — The Texas Tribune, Honolulu Civil Beat, WNYC, ProPublica — were winners. (Also, Nieman Lab won in the topical reporting category, for which we are very grateful.)

Go check out the winners list, which includes links to all their work, and be inspired about what you can pull off online these days.
