Earlier today, we received some unexpected news: the Catholic Press Association failed to announce the winners in several categories at their annual awards ceremony, held in Pittsburgh back in June. In one such category, “Special Edition,” ONE took 1st place for our September 2010 issue on Christians in the Middle East!
This brings our total up to 11 awards, tying our personal best. The rest can be found here.
The text of the award follows:
BEST SPECIAL ISSUE, SECTION OR SUPPLEMENT
One Magazine, New York, N.Y., “Christians in the Middle East: Special Edition” by Communications Team
Simply outstanding. ONE was a compelling read which was hard to put down. Thoughtful and well researched, this issue never faltered.
