The award recognized excellence in reporting and writing, photography and videography, site design and structure, and community engagement. The contest, which included more than 100 entrants in three categories singled out the top 10 websites in each group.
KUsports.com was in the group for sites with up to 500,000 unique monthly visitors.
Though the top 10 are not ranked, other sites in KUsports.com’s class that were recognized included the Wisconsin State Journal, the Bloomington Herald-Times and the Tuscaloosa News. Other top-10 finishers in larger categories included the Daily Oklahoman, USA Today, the Washington Post and the San Antonio Express-News.
This is the second major award for KUsports.com in the past year. In June, Editor and Publisher magazine recognized KUsports.com with its prestigious EPpy Award, for being the top website in its category.
Judges of the contest work at media outlets including AOL Fanhouse, MSNBC.com, ESPN.com and Yahoo! Sports.
