ANOTHER WINNER!  Just got word from Joe Thompson at the Hood County News (Granbury, TX) that the paper won first place for General Excellence and Page Design in the Texas Press Assn. annual contest. The category was semi-weeklies with 4,0001 circulation or greater.

The Hood County News, a Henninger Consulting project, launched its redesign early last year.

Comments from the judges:

1. Hood County News — Clear, concise, yet lively
writing throughout. Well-organized pages, well-organized sections
(such as sports and entertainment). Front page stories go
beyond coverage of government meetings to get to the heart of
important issues. Excellcent photography. Good clean layouts
area reader friendly. Overall an excellent paper.
1. Hood County News — Very clean front with a
dominant photo and good headline weight. Opinion is nice and
airy, with good headline weights. Fun sports page. Great use of
tennis ball in headline and cutout photos. Good readout head
and enlarged first few graphs. The drop cap color is creative but
a little jarring. Life page is really nice. It grabs you instantly
with the photo and headline. The scale text is creative, but package
would be cleaner with some style for both headline words.

GENERAL EXCELLENCE. Well-organized pages, well-organized sections (such as sports and entertainment). Front page stories go beyond coverage of government meetings to get to the heart of important issues. Excellcent photography. Good clean layouts are reader friendly. Overall an excellent paper.
