Los Angeles Times Awarded Silver Medal for ‘The Homicide Report’


The LA Times has won a silver medal in the Feature Coverage category with its piece, “The Homicide Report.”

Judges remarks:

  • “It’s been around forever now, and they keep updating it. They keep making it better. It’s one of the few iterative projects that I’m aware of that goes across years. They don’t lose their data and they keep improving their design. They update it based on new technology that comes along.”
  • “It’s a tool, and they’re still getting stories out of it.”
  • “There’s so much derivative, and this is just its own. What it was designed to do, it’s doing. It’s handsome and useful and a joy to navigate.”
