Title:How Dry is California?
Publication: Washington Post
What the judges said: “This is a classic example of “show, don’t tell.” It takes a tough topic and helps the reader understand it in a surprising, memorable way. Your phone almost becomes the chart. Normally we don’t like the idea of scroll-jacking (hijacking the behavior of the scroll), but this project wouldn’t work without it. There’s a simplicity and ambient nature of the lightly moving water, it shows restraint. Subtle but engaging.”
