GateHouse Media launches digital portfolio of company’s best work
GateHouse Media is pleased to announce the launch of BestofGateHouse.com, a digital portfolio of the company’s top work in categories including editorial writing, multimedia initiatives and design.
The Best of GateHouse 2014 winners were announced in mid-2015, and now that 2015 has come to a close, this industry-facing site has been launched to showcase the great work honored internally earlier this past year. The site features PDFs from the Best of GateHouse 2014 contest winners’ entries, as well as links to interactive versions of each entry and the contest judges’ insights.
Some of the winning journalists and projects available to explore on the site include:
Social Media Project of the Year, Division A: When reporter Katy Bergen of The Herald-Tribune learned that the Dragon Boat Festival to honor breast cancer survivors would be held in her community, she developed a unique coverage plan that involved bombarding social media with an enormous selection of relevant content.
Editorial Writer of the Year, Division A: Michael Smith, editor of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, boldly tackled hot-button subjects including the Confederate flag, public records access and political gaffes.
Reader Involvement, Division A: Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll of the Cape Cod Times involved more than 1,300 students from 36 schools in Classroom Times, a special edition newspaper written and illustrated completely – including ads submitted through a Create-An-Ad contest – by the students.
“Each year, we are impressed and inspired by the pool of incredible work that we receive [in our annual Best of GateHouse contest],” said GateHouse Media Senior Vice President of Content & Product Development David Arkin. “These entries reflect a continued commitment to hard-hitting, quality journalism. They also demonstrate an enthusiasm and willingness to embrace digital change, while producing great work that defines our increasingly digital industry.”
