Judges have awarded ProPublica a silver medal for its entry, “Nursing home inspect” in the data project (features), over 50,000,000 page views/month category.
Here’s what the judges had to say:
“There is nothing else out there about this service. This project considered the data in a way that hasn’t been done before.”
“The database is very accessible and valuable in itself. The project also included a list of of news reports that arose as a result of the project, making it very powerful when considering the kind of impact that can come out of this kind of reporting.”
