Published May 3, 2012

Anglican Journal’s special supplement, Report on Education (November 2011), won an award of excellence for design.

Chicago—The Anglican Journal has received 14 awards, including two awards of excellence and an award of merit for “Best in Class” from the Associated Church Press (ACP).

The awards were presented here last night at the ACP’s annual conference, held April 30-May 2. Founded in 1916, the ACP is the oldest interdenominational religious press association in North America.

Top honours went to Art Director Saskia Rowley Fielder, who received two awards of excellence: one for design of the eight-page Report on Education (November 2011); and another for front page design.

The Journal’s peers in the ACP recognized its commitment to excellence with the Best in Class award of merit. “The team at the Journal is very dedicated and hard-working, so it’s wonderful to have this recognition,” said Kristin Jenkins, editor of the Journal. “But these awards are icing on the cake,” she added. “Our most important affirmation comes from our readers—the people in the pews.”

Jenkins received an award of merit for her editorial, What colour is your church? (April 2011).

The feature story, Coming Home (February 2011), garnered an award of merit for Marites N. Sison, senior staff writer. Diana Swift, staff writer, received an award of merit for her in-depth coverage of the military chaplaincy (October 2011). The special section also received an honourable mention in the “theme issues”category.

Several contributors to the Journal also were honoured. The Rev. Gary Nicolosi received an award of merit for his theological reflection, The case for open communion (May 2011), and the Rev. Canon Harold Munn received an award of merit for his column, Re-thinking how we do church.

Honourable mentions went to:

* David Anderson for his editorial cartoon (December 2011) ;

* The Rev. Lee Lambert for his personal reflection, Truth or dare (June 2011);

* Marites N. Sison for coverage of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission National Event in Halifax and Inuvik (September and December 2011); and
