Peers in the trade honor excellent efforts

Winning awards is not why reporters and editors do what they do. Getting the story (and getting it first) is the payoff. But it’s nice to be recognized by colleagues for jobs well done.

The Washington Times has been honored over the years with thousands of national and regional awards — and this, of course, is a conservative estimate — for outstanding news reporting and editing, editorial and column writing, arts and features coverage, sports and special sections, headlines, photography, illustration and page design — not to mention what the judges call “overall excellence.”
