The ONA Community Award honors a person, small team or community in online journalism that has made outsize contributions to these communities or workplaces, particularly those who create and foster an inclusive environment that allow journalists to do game-changing work.
These achievements are sometimes overshadowed by the busy daily news operations and recognition given to individual projects and stories. This award is an opportunity to lift up those behind-the-scenes colleagues who have had an extraordinary impact on the field by bolstering a sense of belonging and creating space for innovative work.
ONA members are invited to submit nominations for this award. Nominations for the 2024 ONA Community Award will open early June 2024.
