SINGAPORE - Singapore's top citizen journalists will be honoured in the inaugural STOMP Citizen Journalism Awards.
Starting on Monday, the leading citizen-journalism website will pay tribute to the most impactful, engaging and much-talked-about stories contributed by the man in the street.
And the winners will be decided by none other than STOMPers themselves.
Every month, beginning with this month, the top 10 stories of the past month will be shortlisted for voting.
The shortlisting will be done by STOMP editors based on these criteria:
- The number of views and comments a story has attracted;
- The originality of the story and being first with the breaking news;
- The impact of the story;
- The story's "talkability" factor;
- The contribution of photos and videos;
- The social value of the story;
- How the story engaged people.
