Winner, Creative Use of the Medium, Online Journalism Awards 2000. Comprehensive and creative coverage of the trial of four New York City police officers charged with murdering an unarmed man named Amadou Diallo — a case tried in Albany. “The Times Union took a news event common throughout the ages – a highly polarized, politicized court case – and covered it with the best of both traditional journalistic standards and the tools of a new medium. Along with regular trial updates, the site provided outstanding photos in a scroll-along format, as well as 360-degree photos of the courtroom and protests. Readers also enjoyed audio and video from the courtroom. It was a presentation as comprehensive and compelling as its subject matter,” the judges said.
