Reuters Journalist of the Year

2011 - Best Storytelling Innovation
Anthony De Rosa joined Reuters as social media editor in July and immediately began pushing the boundaries of journalism, experimenting with new technologies to tell stories locally and internationally through the use of social platforms. Notably, two projects – the coverage of the Arab spring uprising and the London riots through social sources – established a new storytelling form by tracking reporting from all available sources in real time. By curating the “ambient wire,” Anthony and his team identify where news is happening and apply the same rigors of verification that the Reuters Trust Principles demand. Anthony’s work has attracted the attention of his peers in technology and journalism. NBC New York named him one of the “20 individuals who shape the local conversation.” He is a frequently quoted expert in new journalism and has taught classes across the country, most recently at Stanford.

El Mundo Journalist of the Year

2013 - Journalist of the Year, Reporter
Anthony De Rosa, chief editor of Circa received the Reporters Prize of the World from El Mundo in 2013, which he shared with Jennifer Preston of The New York Times. Both represent the future of journalism which is already present and the possibilities that new technologies offer to journalists. "Even me, the great opportunity that we provide social networking is that ability to connect with people around the world," Preston said. She added: "Social networks are great, fantastic, but ultimately what counts is journalism." For his part, De Rosa, an expert on information and mobile devices, predicted that "we are ready to change, to take the wisdom of the past and unite constant innovation offered by technology. We cannot settle into our old habits."

The Death of Platforms

soupsoup.tumblr.com — Facebook isn't going away, neither is Twitter, nor Tumblr. No offense to Tumblr but in a perfect world, we wouldn't have any of these platforms. In a perfect world everyone would have their own piece of the web that they own entirely.

What are you doing this for?

medium.com — I know there are many folks in the media business who spend a great deal of time trying to figure out how to build a better mousetrap. Mousetraps are not built for the benefit of the mouse. I'm not interested in building mousetraps.
