Winners of APSE’s 2010 web contest announced Jan. 1, 2011


APSE is pleased to announce the results of the website portion of its annual sports journalism contest. Winners will be recognized at APSE’s summer conference in Boston this June.


2010 marks the second year of web competition, and there were a number of changes as the contest continues to evolve.


Most significantly, a third competition category was added, as was a second day of judging. APSE’s officers anticipate adding a fourth competition category, mirroring print, and a third day of judging in 2011. 


We’ve also added this year a multimedia category, which will be judged for the first time at our winter conference in Indianapolis in February. (We are seeking judges for the winter conference. Click here for more information).


I’d like to again thank the 12 journalists who judged the more than 100 entering websites. By all accounts, the work was grueling, though rewarding.


If you are interested in judging in 2011, or have suggestions how to improve the contest, please contact me and 2nd Vice President Gerry Ahern (gahern@yahoo-inc.com).


Judges for the A group were: Tom Bergeron of Yahoo! Sports (chair); Randy Kim of AOLFanhouse; David E. Wilson of ESPN.com; and Brian White of MSNBC.com.


Judges for the B group were: Matt Pepin of Boston.com (chair); Howard Sinker of the Minneapolis Star Tribune; Adam Mertz of the Wisconsin State Journal/Capital Times; and Toby Carrig, formerly of the Antelope Valley (Calif.) Press and now of the Decatur (Ill.) Herald & Review.


Judges for the C group were: Loren Nelson of Minnesota Hockey Hub (chair); Danyelle White of the Salt Lake Tribune; Scott Ridge of AOLFanhouse; and Danny DeFreitas of MSNBC.com.
