Georgia Press Association honors Better Newspaper Contest winners

JEKYLL ISLAND, GA. – The Georgia Press Association honored the winners of the 2019 Freedom of Information Award and the 2019 Better Newspaper Contest on Friday at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel during the group’s 133rd annual convention.

The Valdosta Daily Times won the prestigious Freedom of Information Award for doing the most during 2018 to uphold the principles of the First Amendment and to protect the public’s right to know. The Daily Times was honored for its continuing efforts throughout the year to educate the public and public officials about Georgia’s sunshine laws.

Over the course of 2018, the newspaper defended the public’s right to speak at local school board meetings, published a special section featuring explanatory journalism about open-government laws, made more than 200 public records requests in the course of reporting on subjects such as prison deaths, school safety, immigration, millage rates, banking regulations and college sexual assault, and uncovered violations of the Open Meetings Act by local and state government bodies.

This is the third time in four years that The Valdosta Daily Times has won the Freedom of Information Award from Georgia Press Association. Judging for the award is provided by the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Two young journalists were honored as winners of GPA’s Emerging Journalist Awards. Journalists younger than 30 with less than five years of experience writing professionally for a newspaper — one from the state’s daily newspapers and one from the state’s weeklies — were honored for demonstrating excellence and maintaining high standards of quality and ethics. The daily newspaper winner was Isabel Hughes of the Gwinnett Daily Post of Lawrenceville. The weekly newspaper winner was Sydney Taylor of The News Observer of Blue Ridge.

Winners in the Georgia Press Association Better Newspaper Contest were honored for their outstanding achievements in newspaper journalism. Entries were judged in seven divisions based on circulation. The daily divisions are Division A (circulation of 10,000 or more), Division B (6,000 to 9,999) and Division C (circulation less than 6,000). Weekly divisions are Division D (circulation of 6,000 to 15,000), Division E (weeklies with circulation of 3,000 to 5,999), Division F (circulation less than 3,000) and Division G (all weekly newspapers of more than 15,000 in circulation and all associate media members of GPA).

The photograph chosen as the Photo of the Year was taken by Matt Aiken of The Dahlonega Nugget. It depicts the efforts of Lumpkin County firefighters to battle a blaze at a local hardware store. Water sprayed on the fire as the sun shone down created a rainbow in the image. Aiken’s photo won the spot news photo award for Division E. All first-place winners in photo categories are considered for Photo of the Year.

There were 622 awards presented in 46 categories to 71 newspapers. Judging was done by members of the South Carolina Press Association in February and early March. A total of 80 newspapers entered at least one category in this year’s contest.

General Excellence Awards are based on overall evaluation of the newspaper. Points toward General Excellence are earned based on awards in contest categories and in Georgia Press Association’s advertising contest.

The top-three winning entries in each division of every category are available online at: https://newspapercontest.com/Georgia/winners/entries_list.php
