CNEWA’s quarterly magazine, ONE, received 21 honors, including third place for Best Magazine/Newsletter of the Year, at the 2020 Catholic Press Association awards last week. The awards were part of the Catholic Media Conference, which for the first time was held virtually because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Praising the magazine’s content and overall excellence, the judges wrote:
Want to know what’s going on in the east? Then this is your publication: Syria, Egypt, Armenia, Georgia, Kerala, Ethiopia, Israel, and India. And those are just the cover stories. But they all represent local situations that the publication proclaims should be situations for us all to ponder. Pictures are dynamic not just because of their professional quality, but because they tell a story of hardship, of compassion, of love. Very well put together publication.
The panel of judges included academics and media professionals from around the country. A complete list of the awards follows, with links to the winning entries.
