Pg Wins 16 Awards in AP Managing Editors' Contest


For the second time in two weeks, the Post-Gazette has captured more awards than any large-circulation newspaper in Pennsylvania in a venerable statewide journalism contest. The PG won 16 awards -- eight first places and eight seconds -- in the Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors' competition, more than twice as many as the nearest competitor.

A landmark series by Sean Hamill and Jonathan D.

Besides the Post-Gazette, other newspapers competing in the large- circulation category were: the Philadelphia Daily News, which won seven awards; The (Harrisburg) Patriot-News, which won six awards; The Philadelphia Inquirer, four awards; Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (3); Lancaster Newspapers (1); and The (Allentown) Morning Call (1).

The PG won first place in the following categories:

Enterprise Reporting: Sean Hamill and Jonathan D. Silver, "UPMC: Forging a Giant Footprint"

Column: Reg Henry, "Rampant Gun Culture Aided by Cowardice"

Online Coverage of Breaking News: Staff award, "Shootings at Western Psych"
