Stomp wins international award

Stomp has won an international award for its 360-degree interactivity.

This win follows Stomp's earlier successes at the Mob-Ex Awards 2014, where it won the Gold award for Best in Original Content, as well as the Bronze award for Best Use for Social Platform at the event.

Stomp also took Gold for Best in Online Media in the category of Newspaper Website at the Asian Digital Media Awards late last year.

Stomp was among 30 of the world's leading news media that were winners at the 84th Annual International News Media Association (INMA) World Congress in San Francisco yesterday.

Stomp was placed 3rd in the category of Best Idea to Encourage Print Readership or Engagement.

The other winners in this category were ┼Żurnal of Slovenia and the Irish Independent of Dublin.

Stomp won the award for its 360-degree interactivity, which empowers citizen journalists to share news and opinions via the website and its mobile app.

Stories contributed by Stomp's citizen journalists are often picked up by mainstream media.

Stomp's app is a one-touch citizen journalism tool that users can use to contribute stories, photos and videos, read stories and post comments.

Numerous functional refinements to the citizen journalism process are also added to the app, including the ability to upload multiple pictures and videos with a single touch.

Content navigation has also been enhanced, with additional controls within an article that allow for sharing via social media platforms, navigating between sections and text enlargement.

With these key improvements, it is now easier than ever for citizen journalists to report happenings on the streets and enjoy the full Stomp experience.
