Monthly Unique Visitors: 400,001 & overEnterprise News Story or SeriesFirst PlaceSan Francisco ChronicleSan FranciscoDelta on the EdgeThis story makes the most of the digital medium, with stunning photos and video, informative graphics and vivid writing that captures a world and way of life far removed - and threatened - by climate change, development pressures and the thirst of millions of people in the Bay Area and beyond. And a great ending, too.Kurtis Alexander, Carlos Avila Gonzalez, Santiago MejiaThis was an extremely competitive category. The differences between Places 1 and 5 were miniscule.
Monthly Unique Visitors: 400,001 & overEnterprise News Story or SeriesSecond PlaceLos Angeles TimesEl SegundoA pork factory town, the refugees who make up the rolls, and coronavirus outbreak that rocked the regionThis is some of the best character-driven national reporting to emerge during the pandemic.

I especially appreciated that the reporter went back to Sioux Falls several times after his first story.Jaweed KaleemThis was an extremely competitive category.
