Times wins 9 news design awards

Published March 3, 2007


The St. Petersburg Times has won nine awards in the 2006 international competition of the Society for News Design, which recognizes excellence in newspaper design, graphics and photography. It was the newspaper's best showing in the annual competition.

The Times, which launched a new look in October, won four awards in redesign categories for the Metro Report, Latitudes, Neighborhood Times and the Dish page. Patty Cox, deputy managing editor/presentation, design directors Amy Hollyfield, Nikki Life and Chris Kozlowski, and designers Deborah Block, Holly Braford, Jennifer DeCamp, Josh Engleman and Dan Hieb were among those who contributed.

Jessica Parker Gilbert won two awards for feature page design. DeCamp and Engleman also received awards in that category. John Corbitt, Dana Oppenheim and Terry Chapman received an award of excellence in business page design.

"Readers often tell us how much they appreciate the new look of the Times. We put a lot of thought into our presentation, and it's wonderful to see that recognized at an international level," Cox said.

The Society for News Design has more than 2,600 members in 54 countries. The top award winners will be honored at the society's annual workshop in Boston in October. Winners will be showcased in the 28th edition of The Best of Newspaper Design, a book scheduled for release in the fall.
