According to its website, Wired is “the first word on how ideas and innovation are changing the world.” And, as lauded as the print pub is, Wired.com has its own share of accolades. In 2009, it scored both a Best Magazine Website honor by AdWeek and a Best News, Business & Finance Website distinction by MPA Digital. It was also a 2011 finalist for the National Magazine Award for Digital Media General Excellence.
With headlines like, “This Wacky Web Browser Works Like an Ouija Board” and “Google Glass is Great for Toddlers. Seriously,” the content attracts tech junkies and journos alike. Good news, freelancers: the editors at Wired.com are open to pitches for all of its sections.
