This special award will recognize one entry package - across all circulation divisions - for the best use of video by an individual (no team or staff entries). Videos can involve breaking and ongoing news, features and/or sports and can be supplements to print coverage and/or online only productions. Three different videos must be submitted, along with a cover letter to explain the use, background and impact of the videos. Work that has been entered in another category of the Keystones is acceptable.
Judges will consider content and production quality as well as the value, creativity and impact of the videos. Videos will be reviewed for how well they conveyed a story and if readers/viewers were engaged.
Winner will receive a personalized plaque as well as a $500 cash award, sponsored by Calkins Media.
Congratulations to Kate Penn of the York Daily Record/Sunday News - winner of the 2016 Calkins Media Distinguished Video Award!
