The Guardian wins at WAN-IFRA’s 2019 European Digital Media Awards

The newsbrand took home the award for Best Digital Project to Engage Millennial Audiences, Best Paid Content Strategy and Best Data Visualisation. 

WAN-IFRA’s European Digital Media Awards, which were presented at an event in Vienna this week, recognise the most innovative projects in digital publishing.

The Guardian picked up awards for:

Best Digital Project to Engage Millennial Audiences 

Fake or For Real 

To help readers better understand how to recognise fake news, The Guardian launched its “Fake or For Real” series on Instagram. Since its launch, thousands of viewers have tuned into the weekly reveal of fake and real stories.

Best Paid Content Strategy

The Guardian – membership

Last year, the publisher adopted a reader-funded business model, with the aim of guaranteeing independent and investigative journalism. The new model is paying off and people from across the globe are contributing. 

Best Data Visualisation

How Amazon became the world’s most valuable retailer

The Guardian illustrated Amazon’s rise to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company using an interactive timeline, which demonstrated the company’s huge annual growth. The slick visualisation even monitors the number of items shipped in the time you have been on the page.

Regional winners are automatically entered into the World Digital Media Awards, which will be announced in June.
