NHPR: NH Press Association Contest 2020 - Digital Presence

Sarah Gibson for NHPR

NHPR's entry in this category reflects several ambitious, multi-media/digital reporting projects, some of which were a long time in planning. But an unprecedented series of events in 2020 - the global pandemic, a divisive election, and uprisings around racial injustice - challenged us to pivot again and again, often to digital-first journalism designed to shine a light on these events and inform our audience.

This entry includes digital work in the following categories:

Digital Journalism, Engagement, Social Media, Podcasts

Special projects and series:

  • By Degrees: A climate change reporting project focused on stories of resilience and struggle, innovation and compromise, and of big change happening before our eyes
  • Lifelines: A series on trauma in the time of COVID-19
  • COVID & The Classroom: An ongoing reporting project about how Granite Staters are balancing the demands and necessity of remote schooling with the realities of life in the pandemic
  • ¿Qué Hay de Nuevo, New Hampshire? A new Spanish language news service (available online and via WhatsApp)
  • New Hampshire Calling: A live, nightly, pop-up radio show offering a forum for listeners to share how they were doing in the early days of the pandemic
  • 2020: A year in New Hampshire news
