Top ten, again

For the second time in as many months, The Royal Gazette was yesterday given the nod for having one of the ten best newspaper front pages in the world by the renowned Newseum in Washington DC.

The interactive museum of news and journalism located on Pennsylvania Avenue is a seven-level, 250,000-square-foot museum featuring 15 theatres and 14 galleries.

Its mission is “to help the public and the news media understand one another better” and to “raise public awareness of the important role of a free press in a democratic society.” Oversized images of the Newseum's daily selection of top ten front pages are projected in front of the facility and are seen by thousands of residents and visitors to Washington. Other international publications making the cut yesterday included China's People's Daily Online, Israel's Maariv and the UK's Times.

Along with London's Times, USA Today and seven other American and global newspapers, the Newseum previously recognised The Royal Gazette in September for our front page coverage of Bermudian Joanne Ball-Burgess' ordeal in the Nairobi shopping mall massacre.
