BBC News, Al Jazeera take online journalism honours

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AFP) - BBC News, Al Jazeera and The Los Angeles Times scooped up the top prizes as the Online News Association (ONA) handed out its annual awards on Saturday. Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail, Argentina's La Nacion, France's OWNI and Germany's Zeit Online were also among those recognised by the ONA for their digital journalism efforts. BBC News took the award for general excellence in online journalism by a large site while The Globe and Mail won the award for a medium site. Al Jazeera was honoured in the breaking news category for its coverage of the popular uprising in Egypt. The Los Angeles Times won two awards: one for innovative investigative journalism and a second for online video journalism at a large site. The newspaper's investigation of corruption in a small California town also earned a prestigious Pulitzer Prize earlier this year.
