COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Christian Chronicle earned top honors this week in the annual journalism contest sponsored by the Evangelical Press Association.
The Chronicle claimed first place for best print newspaper — one of 14 overall awards received by the Oklahoma-based international publication for members of Churches of Christ.
“Solid, in-depth writing,” one judge commented. “The range of interesting article topics was nice. … Overall, the design and content serves the reader and motivates them to turn the page.”
Erik Tryggestad, the Chronicle’s president and CEO, expressed his gratefulness for the award.
“I love it when the judges acknowledge what I already know about this publication,” Tryggestad said. “I hope that doesn’t come across as haughty — because we really are humbled by this recognition.
“We have a small, dedicated team, and we work our hearts out to make this publication one that serves our readers,” he added. “The feedback we get from our readers is enough for me in terms of accolades, but this is pretty nice, too!”
The paper’s website — christianchronicle.org — earned second place for best digital newspaper. ReligionUnplugged.com, where Chronicle editor-in-chief Bobby Ross Jr. writes a weekly column, took first place in the online category.
