Aids in the Caribbean, Sun-Sentinel.com

A wonderful Web adaptation of a six-part series about AIDS in the Caribbean that ran in the Sun-Sentinel in Ft. Lauderdale. The online package, produced in Flash, is a great example of how a newspaper can take advantage of the Web to tell a story in a new way online, rather than just repackaging and adding a few bells and whistles. How did an online site with limited resources do this? By getting advance notice and working closely with all departments. The package is also noteworthy because the paper took the effort to reach out to multiple communities, producing the online package in English, Spanish and even Creole. Winner, Feature Journalism: Affiliated, Online Journalism Awards 2001. The judges said the writing is brief, intelligent and clear, making great use of photography and providing good access to powerful information.
