“A Seed is Forever” wins award


My master’s project, “A Seed is Forever,” recently won an award at the 2010 Online Journalism Awards. It won the “Best Student Multimedia Feature Presentation” award, of which I’m very proud. This is what the judges said about my project:

“The judges decided that this was a winning entry because we were really impressed by the quality of the production of this piece. We were also really impressed that it was all put together by a single journalist. The reporter did the reporting, did the programming of the flash site, did the design work, the video editing, without really compromising the quality of any of those different elements. The story allows you to follow two different threads using guides. We thought that this is something we’d like to see more of generally in the news industry–helping lead the reader through the story, and this is what this piece managed to do very well.”

Now that the project has gotten some recognition, I need some help getting it published somewhere so that it can accomplish what I originally set out to do: bring awareness to the subject of my project, youth and agriculture in Sierra Leone. Got any ideas?
