As keen followers of our Twitter feed may have noticed, the Review added to its trophy case yesterday, taking home eight awards from the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.
Miro Rodriguez’s story about how citizen video affects coverage of police shootings earned second place in the “Consumer Magzine Article: Feature” category. In the same category, Megan Jones’ feature about journalists’ mental health was recognized with an honourable mention.
Rebecca Melnyk’s feature on the importance of literary journalism after Lac-Mégantic was recognized in two categories, taking second place in both: “Places” and “Investigation and Analysis.”
In the latter category, another Review writer was also recognized: Daniel Sellers, for his first-person look at the growing world of branded content.
Luc Rinaldi’s examination of religious publications—and his own experience with one of them—earned him third place in the “First Person” category.
In the “Specialized Business Press Article” category, Ronan O’Beirne’s take on how journalists cover public-opinion polls took third place.
And, finally, the Spring 2014 issue as a whole took third place for “Single Issue of an Ongoing Print Magazine.” The above articles and all the other excellent work from this year’s masthead can be found here.
For those keeping a tally—not that we ever would—eight is (according to our instructor, Tim Falconer) a record for the Review.
The masthead would like to offer its thanks to the many editors who helped shepherd these pieces to print. And thanks to you, as ever, for reading.
