We at Slate are delighted to announce that the magazine today received the General Excellence Award for Digital Media in the "News & Opinion" category. The award, bestowed by the American Society of Magazine Editors, is a great honor, especially given the strength of the other nominees in our category— the Atlantic, the Daily Beast, the New York Times Magazine, and Wired.com. Slate has been in digital media for as long as anyone, but coasting on our experience is not an option when the competition is this good. Instead, we've tried to stay true to our pioneer roots, constantly rethinking what's possible on the Web. This year we added an iPad app (which earned Slate a nomination in the "Mobile Edition" category); continued to produce surprising, entertaining Web video (earning us a nomination in the "Video" category); and challenged the idea that the Internet is ideal only for short-form journalism. Emily Bazelon's reporting on cyberbullying, William Saletan's profile of "memory doctor" Elizabeth Loftus, and Timothy Noah's investigation into income inequality, among other series, proved that readers are hungry for long, serious, deeply reported stories on the Web—especially when that reporting uses the Web to the fullest by featuring photos, graphics, videos, and podcasts. Thank you to ASME for recognizing these efforts, and thank you to Slate readers for clicking on them, commenting on them, and inspiring us to produce smart, provocative—award-winning!—journalism.
