We’re very excited to announce that Foreign Policy has won an Overseas Press Club award for general excellence on the web. In a reminder of the major international news stories this past year, six of the OPC’s 27 awards were related to coverage of the Libyan uprising and four to coverage of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami. The awards will be presented at a dinner tonight in New York.
Thanks to all of you for helping make ForeignPolicy.com such a vibrant destination!
