Entries will showcase work that goes beyond the daily news fare to deliver deeper, more insightful coverage of issues.
Entries will be judged on the depth of coverage, difficulty in telling the story, reader engagement through photos, graphics or video/audio, and use of digital media and social media tools to reach, engage and inform audiences. Entries may consist of a single story or a series of related stories.
