Excellence in Thoughtful Communications

July 20, 2010

The New Print is proud to present an inaugural batch of what I’m going to call Excellence in Thoughtful Communications Awards (Etc. Awards).

Best Wikipedia Entry: a List of Common Misconceptions.  I really hope the network effect makes this one grow even larger.

Best Music Video About Culture: “Internet Killed the Video Star.”

Winner of both Best Thing to Come Out of Canada This Year and Best Web-Series I’d Never Seen: Nirvana The Band The Show.

Best Advertising Campaign of the Year: Old Spice Guy (of course).

Best Political Commentary Embodied in a Single Rhetorical Question: “What if the Tea Party was Black?

In the citizen-journalism-only category, Best YouTube Montage: Tea Party Signs You Won’t See on Fox News.

Best Piece of Investigative Journalism: Top Secret America (more to come on this soon, but JUST READ IT now).  Close runner up: Collateral Murder.  I may have called this one prematurely, but I do think that the sprawling nature of the problem in the former makes the achievement more dramatic.  N.B. Both required the help of Wikileaks (which will become apparent soon enough).
