INSP Awards: Announcing our 2017 Best Online Presence Finalists

One week from today we will be raising a glass of bubbly and toasting to the winners of the 2017 INSP Awards!

We’ve been announcing all our lucky finalists over the past two weeks, and today we present you with the four internet-savvy finalists in the Best Online Presence category.

Our judging panel have selected one of these four to take the crown, and the winning street paper will be announced at the ceremony during the Global Street Paper Summit.

The Finalists:

Mi Valedor, Mexico

Mi Valedor

Each week, on Facebook, Twitter and their website, Mi Valedor post the stories and experiences of their vendors along with their selling location, and invite readers to share these stories with their friends digitally.

Nový Prostor, Czech Republic

Novy Prostor

Nový Prostor’s Facebook profile is partly presented as a kind of street-television programme, where their editorial team, along with vendors, create unique content. One highlight is “Sunday’s Minute of Poetry”, where poets and vendors come together to talk about life and poetry on camera.

The Contributor, USA

The Contributor

The Contributor launched a redesigned website in November 2016 to better serve its customers and showcase its compelling content. One important addition was an interactive vendor map, featuring photo icons that indicate where many of The Contributor’s 300 vendors sell. Under each news article, buttons prompt readers to share articles on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.
