nzdoctor.co.nz was highly commended

 

Here at nzdoctor.co.nz we were thrilled this year to be finalists in the Best Online News Website category of the national Canon Media Awards. These prestigious awards recognise excellence in journalism throughout the New Zealand print and online media.

For New Zealand Doctor the category presented an opportunity to show our website is on a par with news websites produced by much larger news organisations - The New Zealand Herald were winners.

Here's what the judges had to say about nzdoctor.co.nz

"This subscriber-model site shows what can be done in the service of a community of practice and by journalists within a specialised field.

"All news must be 100 per cent accurate - and health news doubly so, of course. The site's editorial content speaks of a newsroom focused on providing well-considered journalism that resonates of balance and fairness.

"A 2010 site revamp is well bedded in now and the New Zealand Doctor speaks with knowledge and authority for an audience whose field is both complex and elite in nature.

"The newsroom is to be congratulated for the work it does for a wide range of practitioners and other interested parties.

"The news is straight as a dye, from community health meetings to podcasts on health issues, and the comment varied and rich.

"Blogs from commentators in the health media and other parts of the sector make it an intersection of important opinion and attracts good engagement from readers.

"Alongside the site's strong journalism runs the un-moderated content on health matters provided by a wide range of contributors, from touring speakers to Green Party media statements. It's all clearly delineated and explained, what's more.

"The site functions as a multi-purpose centre of interest for the health sector, also offering free and display advertising, resources for general practitioners and a hub for links to well-judged 'useful' websites.

"The sense of professional community is strong, helped by good integration with the fortnightly print product and the inevitable email newsletter."

That's big praise for a small team!

Our print publication New Zealand Doctor was also highly commended in the Best Trade Professional Publication category.

The judges' summary:

"Bright and clean, the publication combines top quality production values with the thought-provoking investigative journalism and editorial depth required in an often conflicted and constantly evolving health sector."

And we'll keep bringing our readers great coverage - online and in print.
