The Times of London has been awarded a Judges’ Special Recognition for visual storytelling for their 2012 Olympic coverage. The judges said:
They get every detail right — right down to the agate. As an Olympic fan, it’s that level of detail that really separates this from other entries. It’s clean, well thought-out, and so smart. It uses the medium incredibly well, and in such unique ways.
It was the most thorough and consistent coverage we saw of the Games. They did it day after day, at such a high level. If I was going to the Games, I’d be buying these every day, saving them, and using them.
A true Olympic effort — and all done on deadline.
