EXECUTIVE EDITOR JOE SHAW writes about awards from the New York Press Assn.:
“First place, Division 3

‘Very professional layout and design. Photography is high quality and very well used. Nice typography and many points of entry onto the page. Superb!’
Second place, Division 3
The East Hampton Press
‘Good layout–items well spaced on page. Fine typography.’
For the record, the Eastern Edition also won Photographic Excellence, with the Western Edition finishing second…and the Western Edition won first place in General Excellence, with The East Hampton Press finishing second. Among many awards!
A tip of the hat to you, as always…”

AS PROMISED last week, here is the third (and final) installment showing winners from the Best of College Design pages I recently judged.
Last week was Opinion pages, the previous week, front pages.
These are index pages from college magazines.
Some interesting/exciting stuff. Print design is doing very well, thank you.
HERE ARE MORE WINNERS in the recent Best of College Design contest.
Last week, I posted Page 1 winners. Next week, winning magazine pages.
This week, the winning Opinion page entries.
The following pages are in order, first place winner to fifth place.
IT WAS BACK IN APRIL, but the word is still as sweet today as it was then: The Southampton Press (a Henninger Consulting client for some years) was awarded First Place in General Excellence and First Place in Overall Design by the New York State Press Assn.
Congratulations to Publisher Joe Louchheim, General Manager Courtney Ratcliffe and Editor Joe Shaw. The Southampton Press is a consistent winner in NYPA competitions and it’s always a delight working with them.
PUBLISHER CRAIG GARNETT recently sent along some exciting news: The Uvalde Leader-News won first place in general excellence in the 2011 South Texas Press Association Better Newspaper Contest.
The awards were presented in mid-April at the STPA annual convention. The Uvalde Leader-News competed in Division 3 for semi-weekly newspapers. It also received a third-place award for page design.
The South Texas Press Association is the largest regional newspaper organization in the United States.
In a brief note, Garnett said:
We had never won the general excellence division until undergoing the redesign that you completed for us. We now get extremely positive comments from judges regarding the overall appearance of the Leader-News.
The Uvalde Leader-News was a Henninger Consulting redesign in the spring of 2010.
Congratulations to Craig, Editor Carol Kothmann and designers Meghann Garcia and Gloria Resma.
PUBLISHER MELISSA PERNER bubbled with delight a couple of weeks ago when she sent the following note:
Just thought I would let you know we won First Place in Page Design at the Texas Press Association Better Newspaper Contest this weekend! Thanks for all your help!”
When I called to congratulate her, Melissa was still feeling the thrill of having won. When you’re the publisher of a small community newspaper, first-place awards are a big deal.
The Ozona Stockman was a Henninger Consulting redesign in 2010.
Congratulations again to Melissa and her colleagues!
LOOKS LIKE A TRIFECTA! Just got word about three newspapers in Michigan named one, two, three in design in the latest state newspaper contest.
#1: Ludington Daily News: “Great use of white space to create a very clean paper. Uniquely-shaped flag pulls the reader in.” | A Henninger Consulting client.
#2: The Petoskey News-Review: “Close call between 1st and 2nd. Nice, clean, easy-to-look-at page layouts. Good use of color–not over-done.” | Another Henninger Consulting client.
#1: The Sturgis Journal: “White space used effectively. Very easy on the eyes.” | Another Henninger Consulting client.
Congratulations to all!
