The Globe and Mail wins online excellence award

The Online News Association feted The Globe and Mail's website Saturday night, awarding the news organization a general excellence award in the medium site category.

The Globe beat out CBC News, the Las Vegas Sun and The Oklahoman to take the honour, presented at a gala in Boston.

"It is a great honour to be recognized by the Online News Association and the industry for our excellence in digital storytelling," said editor-in-chief John Stackhouse. "We are a strong daily destination for Canadians in many different digital formats and will continue to lead the way in new forms of journalism."

The Globe previously won an Online Journalism Award in 2008, for its Talking to the Taliban series, and received an honourable mention in 2005 for an online feature on AIDS in Africa.
