ONA Weekly #504: The Stories Of 5,000 Missing Women In Argentina

By on March 20, 2024

Amplifying the stories of 5,000 missing women in Argentina

For last year’s International Women’s Day, LA NACION unveiled an ambitious project that put a spotlight on the disappearance of more than 5,000 women in Argentina over three decades. The project involved collaboration over four months among a diverse group of experts — including journalists, photographers, UX designers, data analysts and more — and won the Knight Award for Public Service in the 2023 Online Journalism Awards.

We recently reconnected with the team to hear about how the project got its start and what it meant to win in the OJAs. Read more on how LA NACION is holding the government accountable in the search for missing women.

The call for entries for the 2024 Online Journalism Awards will open April 4. Revisit the 2023 finalists and winners for inspiration as you consider the projects you might submit this year. Plus, check out great tips for crafting your entry.
