My Ballard wins national award



We’re proud to announce that our sister site, myballard.com, just won the very first Community Collaboration award at the 2009 Online Journalism Awards Banquet last night.  They beat fellow nominees LA Times and Miami Herald to win what is equivalent to an Emmy Award in television. 

OJA Committee Co-Chair Anthony Moore said, “We continue to be impressed by the way journalists are pushing the envelope and serving the public interest at the same time.”

Judges commented about the site:

My Ballard is exactly what newspapers are trying to do with hyperlocal content.  And these guys do it.  There was no site that fulfills the sense of community collaboration better.  It’s the literal definition of the category.  It’s extremely useful for the neighborhood and because it lists cool places to go, it works for others.

Congratulations to the Geeky Swedes, Cory and Kate!


award, My Ballard
