Our iPad version of the story Last Song, for National Geographic Magazine, wins an award for MultimediaNon-Linear Storytelling from the White House News Photographers Association’s annual “Eyes Of History” competition.

And here’s an amazing quote from their site:

Writer Jonathan Franzen talks about how our National Geographic story, The Last Song, has helped influence the decision by Albania to ban hunting for the next two years. Franzen and I reported on the mass slaughter of migrating birds across the Mediterranean, and the situation in Albania was especially horrible. See the original story here.
