Comix Journalism: Send Ted Rall Back Afghanistan to Get the Real Story by Ted Rall

Independent journalist/cartoonist Ted Rall used Kickstarter to fund a return trip to Afghanistan, where he composed in-depth reports in the form of cartoon strips and uploaded them via satellite phone. His story is incredible — he went into Afghanistan with no formal protection, no guarantees, only an unshakeable belief that the true story of the people of Afghanistan needed to be told. 

Honorable Mention: LocalWiki wowed us with their ambitious effort to create a collaborative, community-ownned open-source platform for local media.
