Shaw Media takes four of top 10 spots in APSE multimedia contest

The Northwest Herald, McHenryCountySports.com and Shaw Media took four of the top 10 places in the 2012 Associated Press Sports Editors contest Multimedia division. Results were released on Monday afternoon.

McHenryCountySports.com was honored for its “Fastest Four Minutes” video series along with its 2012 prep football preview videos. Dan Mott, Christine Nikolich, Morgan Ellingson, Jason Pfrommer, Erick Ward and Les Johnson were named in the Fastest Four entry while Ward and Johnson produced the preview videos.

HuskieWire.com, a Shaw Media website for the Daily Chronicle in DeKalb, won for its Northern Illinois Orange Bowl preview video and a feature video on quarterback Jordan Lynch.

Mott, Ward and Johnson made the Orange Bowl preview video while Daily Chronicle web producer John Sahly constructed the Lynch video.
