Web Voters Award Sklar Two Mirror Award People’s Choice Prizes

mirror.pngFormer Huffington Post contributor Rachel Sklar nabbed two People’s Choice awards following online voting for Mirror Award nominees.

2009 marks the third year that Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications has presented its Mirror Awards, which honor media reporters. The finalists were first announced last month and members of the public and fellow journalists were asked to view each finalist’s work online and vote for a People’s Choice winner. The six winners of the online balloting were revealed today.

Sklar, who is current working for Abrams Research and The Daily Beast, won People’s Choice prizes for best commentary in digital media and best single article in digital media for her piece “The NYT‘s Selective, Misleading Pentagon Story.”

Other winners included Fast Company‘s Clive Thompson for best single article in traditional media, Mark Bowden of The Atlantic for best profile in traditional media and Broadcasting & Cable‘s Ben Grossman for best commentary in traditional media.

The real Mirror Award winners, selected by a jury of journalists and journalism educators, will be announced at a luncheon on June 9. Sklar’s former boss, Arianna Huffington, is also being honored with the Fred Dressler Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Obama for America New Media Department/Blue State Digital will be receiving the i-3 award for impact, innovation and influence.
