ProPublica’s Electionland Wins Data Journalism Award for News Data App of the Year
The Global Editors Network honored ProPublica’s Electionland project with the Data Journalism Award for News Data App of the Year.
A collaboration with a coalition of organizations – including Google News Lab, Univision, the USA Today Network, the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, WNYC, First Draft and student journalists from 12 colleges and universities – Electionland tracked voter experiences in real time, across thousands of polling sites. With more than 1,100 participating journalists, local newsrooms were alerted to problems, and national partners and their readers received an unprecedented, countrywide look at problems facing the vote.
“[Electionland set] a new high water mark for the use of technology in election coverage due to its use of sophisticated data capture pipelines to augment human verification and judgment calls,” the awards jury said. “In a highly contentious political climate, Electionland chased down reports of election problems at an unprecedented national scale and helped ensure the legitimacy of the vote.”
