Boston Globe’s Getting in series won second place for Best Use of the Web, awarded by The National Press Photographers Association for 2011. Tough competition there: New York Times (1st place), The Detroit Free Press (3rd), USA Today (4th) and MediaStorm (5th).

Content, interface design, navigation, and interactivity will all be evaluated to find the site that best furthers the evolution of web-based visual journalism.”
