Winners of 2018 ASNE Awards for best journalism

ASNE is proud to announce the winners of the 2018 ASNE Awards for distinguished writing, digital storytelling and photography. The winning work is a collection of high-quality, high-impact journalism from news outlets of various sizes and platforms. 
The ASNE Awards honors the best in print, photo and video content in 10 categories. The contest drew nearly 500 entries. 

"This year's winners represent the best journalism being done in America," said ASNE President Alfredo Carbajal, managing editor of Al Día at The Dallas Morning News. "All these winners show the positive impact of watchdog reporting in our society, and they shine light to issues affecting underrepresented communities."
With the exception of the Batten Medal and the O'Brien Fellowship Award for Impact in Public Service Journalism, which covered work published since 2016, the awards were given for work completed in 2017. All news organizations, news services and online-only news sites in the United States, including those without an ASNE member on staff, were eligible to enter. 
Judging took place both online and on-site at The Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida. Click here to see the winners and finalists of each category, along with remarks from the judges.
