Review captures 22 Catholic press awards for writing, photography and general excellence

The St. Louis Review and Catholic St. Louis magazine earned 22 awards for writing, photography, design, multimedia and general excellence at the 2016 Catholic Press Association awards ceremony June 3 in St. Louis.

The Review won third place in general excellence in weekly newspapers with circulation of 25,001 or more. Judges wrote that the paper “presented a variety of articles and viewpoints on topics ranging from the relationship of fish and Lent to the homeless community, to safety in Catholic schools. Great writing.”

Catholic St. Louis earned third place general excellence in diocesan magazines. Judges noted that “strong, well-carried-out themes for each issue of Catholic St. Louis give it a distinctive central focus around which articles from various diocesan programs have their place. Well edited with a unified style crafted from the work of various authors, this magazine stresses quality of content over quantity, yet appears to manage to touch interests of a wide variety of readers.”

Photographer Lisa Johnston earned first place individual excellence photographer; editor Teak Phillips third place individual excellence editor; and Jennifer Brinker honorable mention individual excellence writer.
