Newsy and Bellingcat have been nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding New Approaches: Current News.

The nomination was announced earlier today by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and recognizes a series of open-source visual investigations by Newsy and Bellingcat over the past year.

Some of the topics explored include police violence against journalists in the US, Saudi air strikes in Yemen and executions near the border between Syria and Turkey.

Newsy and Bellingcat have already won the Scripps Howard Award for innovation in 2020.
