The Washington Post Wins Silver for ‘Bad News Beards’ Use Of Multimedia


The Washington Post has been awarded a silver medal in the Use of Multimedia category for its piece “Bad News Beards.”

Judges remarks:

  • “This is so fun. I don’t really care about sports…but this is just delightful.”
  • “What a cool way for a chart. They must have spent a lot of time on this, just for the love of beards and baseball. It all worked really nicely in the browser…. I think this is a silver medal because of the attention to detail. Clearly the people who worked on this loved working on it.”
  • “I think this is truly excellent. It’s very cute, and it does have a lot of character.”
