It was a banner year for The Texas Tribune at the annual Online Journalism Awards: We swept all three categories in which we were finalists, including General Excellence. 

In addition to taking home the top honor in our size bracket (other general excellence winners were Quartz and The New York Times), the Trib also won: 

Best explanatory journalism for our affirmative action project, Price of Admission, recognition we shared with our reporting partners at the Center for Investigative Reporting's Reveal

Best topical reporting for God & Governing, our mini-documentary on the role faith plays in the decision-making of Texas legislators

The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors. Become one.

Our three wins were the most we've collected in a single year and the most for any individual news organization at Saturday night's ceremony other than the Times, which netted five. This brings our total number of awards from the Online News Association, which hands out the OJAs, to nine over the Trib's seven years of operation — three of those in the general excellence category. 

We couldn't be more thrilled to share the news — and to be in such great company.
