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."

What does it mean to be a journalist?

To seek truth.

What advice can you offer to aspiring journalists?

Do not wait for someone to give you an opportunity, create your own. Create a blog, write about what you know.

When's the best time to pitch you?

I prefer not to be pitched unless you have exclusive information to provide. If you do, contact me anytime.

Why I'll Never Buy Another iPhone

fastcodesign.com — I've been an iPhone guy for years. Probably the last time I didn't own an iPhone, I had a flip phone. I've held many Android phones in my hand, and I've been tempted to switch but the simplicity and familiarity of the iPhone always lured me back. No longer.

A Response to “The End of Twitter”

medium.com — I really enjoy and usually agree with much of what Joshua Topolsky has to say about the world of tech and media but felt compelled to respond to his New Yorker article "The End of Twitter" I wanted to annotate it with Genius but for whatever reason, wasn't able to, so I'll post sections I want to respond to here: It wasn't that long ago that I - and many other people I know - would have argued that Twitter was more than just another social network.

The disconnect between traditional media and user generated content.

medium.com — The most newsworthy stuff citizens have will rarely be sent to networks directly The majority of newsworthy video out of Syria, Egypt and all over the world, shot by camera phone finds its way to YouTube by way of citizens.

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

medium.com — Circa was an atom in the universe of Semantic Web and Structured Journalism. I'd like to think we created a Big Bang, which resulted in apps like NYT Now, WSJ's "What's News", Yahoo's News Digest and countless others. However, we didn't create the concept, we just built upon it and hopefully took it further than it had been executed, or conceptualized before.
