2014 - Best Mobile Solution
I was part of the small team at Yahoo Canada that launched the Canadian edition of Yahoo News Digest. Daily news digest production involved selecting the lead story and lineup and summarizing and rewriting top daily stories using the digital tool that powers the mobile and tablet app. Two daily digests (morning and evening) deliver need-to-know Canadian and international news, business, sports, entertainment, odd news, celebrity, health, technology, science, arts, politics stories. The app (and our team) won Best Mobile Solution at the 2014 Canadian Online Publishing Awards.
