The Augusta Chronicle's AugustaArchives.com was awarded an EPPY by Editor & Publisher Magazine for "Best Shopping Application in a Newspaper Online Service" at the magazine's trade show in San Jose, Calif., Friday evening.
AugustaArchives.com allows internet users to search The Augusta Chronicle's archives -- every article, every ad and every photo -- from 1858 to 2000. There is a subscription fee for this service.
This is the Chronicle's first EPPY award victory. The Chronicle's online department has won three Digital Edge awards from the Newspaper Association of America: Best Vertical Site, in 2001; Best Overall Newspaper Site, in 1998; and Best Interactive Feature, in 1997.
