ONE Wins Top Honors at Catholic Press Awards

CNEWA’s magazine ONE took home a record-shattering 22 prizes — including First Place for General Excellence — at the 2013 Catholic Press Association awards held at the Catholic Media Conference in Denver on Friday.

It’s the second time in two years that ONE has set the record for the number of awards won by a single magazine.

The prizes cut across all categories, including electronic media, analysis, design, feature writing and blogs. Summing up the magazine’s achievement for general excellence, the judges wrote:

The design, photography, and writing place ONE among the very best of this year’s Catholic magazines, regardless of category. The design of each spread contributes to the meaning conveyed in graceful writing and powerful images. Various graphic devices unify the spreads from color text blocks through screened background photos to special fonts. Above all, perhaps, ONE provides a global view of the human family with an emphasis on the Near East.

The judges this year were journalism professors at Spring Hill College and Marquette University.
