Judges awarded a silver medal to The New York Times for its entry “Video of First Debate Between Obama and Romney” in the use of multimedia category.
Here’s what the judges had to say:
“With the video and the transcript view together, you can fly into every word and every sentence, providing a completely different experience.”
“It was not just a recap of what was said, it provides a dashboard view. You can navigate the video through text, the transcript, the highlights and it also provides fact-checking on the right.”
