Special features in online journalism. Ten years of Premios Goya and Oscar Awards in Elpais.com (2005-2014)

  • Freixa, Pere
The transformation of traditional journalism into online journalism has brought with it a process of translating paper-based formats and procedures into online ones. The first digital teams incorporated the different journalistic genres, with special features about planned events such as election processes, galas, awards ceremonies and musical festivals. Since 2005, Elpais.com  has continuously published special features devoted to both the Goya and Oscar  awards. The observation and analysis of those interactive and multimedia features provides insight not only into the evolution of stories in digital media, but also into the definition and emergence of an interactive genre of digital media such as the story or feature divided into phases.
