Carol Stream, IL May 14, 2012 -- The Evangelical Press Association presented its 2012 Awards of Excellence and Higher Goals Awards at its annual convention May 9-11, 2012 in Colorado Springs. The global media ministry of Christianity Today was honored with 43 awards.

Each year the Evangelical Press Association contest honors the best work done by EPA-member publications during the past calendar year. This year 12 Christianity Today brands from across the nonprofit ministry won an award. David Neff, Christianity Today editor in chief and vice president, reflects, “All year long, everyone at Christianity Today does what they do for the sake of our readers. But once a year, we enjoy hearing what our professional peers think of our writing, editing, design, and digital efforts. This year’s Evangelical Press Association awards testified once again the high level of professional achievement of people at our ministry. News of these awards made me properly proud of those I work with.”

Some award highlights included:

“This Is Our City” starts off strong

With the launch of the multimedia “This Is Our City” project in 2011, the first city, Portland, won first place in the Article Series category. The judges gave this series high marks, saying, “A fine, well-reported, and creative package….that lets the material drive the stories.”

Christianity Today’s global coverage

Christianity Today is a leader in global reporting about the church, and several awards were given that had a strong international dimension to them, including:

  • Ethiopia’s River of Death,” a report on Christians fighting child sacrifice, won 1st place in the Reporting category, plus 2nd in Single Photo: Candid

  • Havens for Healing,” a piece by Catherine Newhouse on how Pentecostal renewal is transforming Rwanda, won 1st place for Student Writer of the Year

  • The Son and the Crescent” took 2nd place for Cause of the Year, Making the Bible Accessible, and 2nd place in Original Art

  • India’s Grassroots Revival”  received 5th place in the Photo Feature category

A focus on digital

This year’s awards had several new web/digital categories, and in the overall website design category, LeadershipJournal.net took 2nd place with judges commenting “very professional,” “engaging,” and a “great mobile experience.” This is noteworthy because of the site’s redesign in late 2011.  

Additionally, top honors went to Managing Your Church blog with the Award of Excellence in the Church Ministry (Digital) category and SmallGroups.com for Newsletter (Digital).
