The Washington Post has been named ‘Video Team of the Year’ at the 2018 Digiday Awards. According to the Post, The award was decided by public vote and recognizes as the digital publisher that most successfully produced and promoted video and visual journalism.
The P0st added that in June 2017, “Phoebe Connelly, deputy director of video for the Post, explained to Digiday why the team is trained to maximize staffers’ skills rather than have a narrow focus: “It’s bananas as an industry if we expect and teach our talent to think, edit and report for a single platform. We have to set the expectation that the platform you’re using is going to change based on assignments, months or the audience you’re targeting for the story.””
The Digiday Video Awards state they “recognize the most outstanding and inspired work in branded digital video, video marketing and video advertising by brands, agencies and technology companies.” The winners were announced at the awards gala on January 30 in NYC.
