The GA Voice won two second-place awards in this year's Better Newspaper Contest, sponsored by the National Newspaper Association.
Deputy Editor Dyana Bagby won second place in the category of Best Investigative or In-Depth Story or Series, Non-daily Division, circulation 6,000 - 9,999, for her article "Eddie Long scandal 'blows hinges off church's closet doors'."
"Difficult stories like this can follow many paths. Good coverage such as seen here informs the community while providing an opportunity for growth," the judges noted.
The GA Voice website www.thegavoice.com, spearheaded by Web Manager Ryan Watkins, won second place for Best Newspaper Web Site, Non-daily Division.
"Highly interactive site that builds community between editions of the twice monthly paper," the judges said. "Excellent use of social media and community contributions. Headlines and blogroll keep people updated."
The National Newspaper Association is an organization for community newspapers and is the largest newspaper association in the country, citing nearly 150 million readers per week for its publications. The GA Voice has been a member of the NNA since our launch in March 2010; this was our first entry into the awards, which were for content published in 2010.
