Quoting judge Amy Webb in the official press release, The Knight Foundation blog today reported "In Storify, we see a journalism tool that truly solves a newsroom problem and also inspires others to challenge the way they've been telling stories."
The regional not-for-profit Texas Tribune received a special distinction, along with West Africa Democracy radio which provides news and current affairs for 13 African nations, online community organizer Andy Carvin, and the website Bloomberg Government.
Notably, The Guardian Data Store was one of the only projects by a major print-published National Newspaper to receive any credit, coming away with an honorable mention.
