Mini-site/special section of a news website

First place: Coal, UNC student group, University of North Carolina- It seemed beautifully put together, but long. The were some great pieces. This doesn’t use any conventional navigations, but you still know what to do. It’s all integrated. The pop-ups work for this project, even if some of the judges don’t like pop-ups in general. The main criticism is on usability, lots of Flash players.

Second place: American DreamX, UNC student group, University of North Carolina- Beautiful. Another seamless piece with excellent reporting. This one relies on pogo-sticking as well, but commenting and reacting is very easy.

Third place: Finding Uwharries, UNC student group, University of North Carolina- The landing page is intoxicating. Absolutely lovely. The navigation between stories is kind of hard to use.

Honorable mention:

Reframing Mexico, UNC student group, University of North Carolina

Ohio Primary 2012, Frank Yonkof, Rachel Kilroy, Kent State
