The Washington Times received four Top 10 awards in the 2012 Associated Press Sports Editors contest, including a nod as a Top 10 daily section.
The Times, competing in the 75,000-175,000 circulation category, also earned Top 10 special section honors for its 2012 Redskins season preview in judging conducted this week in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Two Times staffers took home individual awards: Nathan Fenno placed in the Top 10 in project reporting for his ongoing coverage of the long-term toll of concussions in football. Nationals reporter Amanda Comak was among the Top 10 in beat writing for her coverage of a Washington team’s first run to the Major League Baseball playoffs since 1933.
“I am incredibly pleased and incredibly proud that our peers have recognized the quality work we’ve done at The Washington Times,” said Times sports editor Mike Harris. “Our section was recognized, as were individual writers, and I think that speaks volumes.”
