The Society for News Design honored the Baltimore Sun's work with three awards of excellence in its annual digital design competition.
Two Sun projects won in the category "single-subject project." They were Shoot to Kill, the online presentation of Justin George's investigation into lethality in Baltimore, and Korryn Gaines: The 6-Hour Police Standoff, an interactive timeline accompanying a story by Alison Knezevich and Kevin Rector.
Graphics for Shocking Force, an investigation into Taser use in Maryland by Mark Puente and Doug Donovan, won in the category "Graphics: Features and planned coverage."
The awards were given to work "that goes beyond technical or aesthetic competency and can honor daring and innovative approaches."
Judges from around the world examined nearly 1,000 entries and awarded 5 gold medals, 27 silver medals and 271 awards of excellence.
The Sun won four digital awards of excellence in the 2015 Society for News Design contest, a record for the paper.
