Touching Hearts,

Touching Hearts: A Story of Hope & Help in Nicaragua, Winner, Creative Use of the Medium: Affiliated, Online Journalism Awards 2001. A story about a Duke University medical mission to Nicaragua from the site of a small newspaper, The Herald-Sun in Durham, N.C. The judges called this site a daring design that made good use of the “Ken Burns-style” technique of moving a camera over still photos. The Durham paper covered the story of local Duke University doctors donating their services in Nicaragua as only a local newspaper could and then told that story as only a Web site could, the judges said. It uses an innovative combination of interactivity, letting the reader click through it, and TV-style presentation where a reader can simply sit back and absorb.
