“Parachuted In” wins National Headliner Award, Third Place in Web or Digital Project

Wow. Just days after finding out that “Parachuted In” is a finalist for a Deadline Club Award, I learn that it also won a 2017 National Headliner Award.

So excited that this game is getting the attention it deserves, in terms of experimenting with game mechanics in journalism. Although I won third place in the web or digital project category, it’s exciting to be acknowledged, especially alongside some incredible projects: Minneapolis Star Tribunes’s gripping exploration of how police interact with mental health crises,  and Bloomberg’s data-powered “Amazon Doesn’t Consider the Race of Its Customers. Should It?” project.

Super cool. Thanks!
