I just saw this list of finalists from the Online Journalism Association. It's worth checking out to see what kind of work is considered exceptional in this field.
I scrolled down to the Outstanding Use of Multiple Media (large) category, and wound up reading the BBC's coverage of the London bombings last July. The diary of Londoner Rachel North kept me reading all the way to the end. She was on one of the trains that was bombed. Amazing — isn't it? — that we can just press a button or whatever and read such an intimate, compelling account of a far away tragedy.
