CJ racks up 16 KPA awards for 2012


Somerset —

Second-place awards received by the Commonwealth Journal went to Shmidheiser for “Best Headline,” where his entry was called “creative in both word and design,” and to the paper for “Best Newspaper Website.”
Third-place awards went to Cornelius for “Best Sports Special Section” for the annual fall sports preview, as well as “Best Sports Picture.”
Honorable mention certificates were received by Neal for both the “Best Column” and “Best On-Going/Extended Coverage Story” categories, Littrell for “Best Feature Story” and “Best Graphic” — the latter of which was a look at the money raised by candidates in the State Senate raising using stacks of coins that the judges called “clever” — Tomlinson for “Best Feature Picture,” paginator Barb Parmley for “Best Lifestyle Page,” and the staff for “Best Special Section.”
Tomlinson’s photo, a fun shot of a young boy on an inflatable at the June Somernites Cruise Block Party event, won the judge’s praise: “The photographer captures the utter joy on the face of the boy enjoying the water. ... This image certainly deserves some mention.”
The contest covered content published between October of 2011 and September of 2012.
