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.
2013 - Journalist of the Year, Reporter
Along with Vargas Llosa were awarded Jennifer Preston, social networks first chief of The New York Times, and Anthony De Rosa, chief editor of Circa. They received the Reporters Prize of the World. Both represent the future of journalism is already present. 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. He 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 to constant innovation offered by the technology. We can not settle into our old habits. '
