America Wins at the CPA

The Catholic Press Association announced its annual awards this weekend, and America did pretty well. OK, we did very well: please excuse this rare display of pride. First and foremost, America was named the best magazine in its category, winning general excellence honors for our three issues dated September 10, 17 and 24, 2007. It’s been a while since we garnered this honor, so needless to say, we were very pleased. Americamagazine.org also won first place in the Best Web site category. "This is truly a webby Catholic magazine website," the judges wrote. "Americamagazine.org uses the power of the Internet to deliver its message in a way that could inspire all magazines." America also nabbed second and third place honors for best article with pieces by Tim Padgett and Fr. Jim Di Giacomo respectively. (Congrats to Abraham Nussbaum for his top-prize winner in Commonweal.) Other honors included second place for best special issue (our September 17 Christology package) and third-place best personality profile (Barbara Crosette on Kofi Annan). Honorable mention went to Jim Keane, S.J. for his two Of Many Things columns, and to Doris Donnelly’s for her interview with Susannah Heschel. Congratulations to all the winners! Tim Reidy
