It's awards season, and we're joining the party by announcing the first annual KobreGuide Awards, for the best videojournalism projects of 2009.
On February 15, we'll be announcing winners in each of our 20 KobreGuide topics (see list below). And we'll also be selecting winners for each of these 5 categories:
* Videojournalist of the Year
* Best videojournalism story
* Best videojournalism package or series
* Best audio slideshow
* Best student project
Each of these winners will receive a Lightscoop plus some other goodies to be announced shortly. (And if you don't already know what a Lightscoop is, get yourself over to Lightscoop.com and start salivating.)
We'll also be awarding a grand prize to the KobreGuide Videojournalist of the Year, and as you'll see next week when we officially reveal it, this one is going to be pretty sweet.
We're going through the 250+ stories we showcased on KobreGuide in 2009, and we're inviting your input. Please let us know what your favorite videojournalism and multimedia pieces were from last year. You can select them from KobreGuide or anywhere else online.
Be sure to first read the KobreGuide criteria -- what we look for in selecting stories.
Whoever submits for our consideration the most entries that become KobreGuide prizewinners will also receive a Lightscoop (retail value $35).
Here are the KobreGuide "Topic Channels". Again, we're looking for the best story in each category, which was originally published in 2009, so please let us know your personal favorites:
