Phoenix wins NENPA honors

By EDITORIAL  |  February 23, 2011

At the New England Newspaper and Press Association awards banquet earlier this month, Portland Phoenix writers earned several awards in the weekly newspaper category. Contributing writer Lance Tapley took second place in investigative reporting for his ongoing series about conditions at the Maine State Prison. Staff writer Deirdre Fulton took second place for health reporting for "What it Means to be Transgender," a story addressing both the politics and the humanity of transgender people. And our Style magazine, edited by Deirdre Fulton and designed by Janice Checchio, won second place as a niche publication. Our staff, including full-timers and freelancers, won third place in arts and entertainment reporting for "Growing Maine Culture," a look back at 10 years of the Maine arts scene. And contributing writer Shay Stewart-Bouley took third place in coverage of a racial or ethnic issue for an installment of her "Diverse-City" column that focused on the fact that people tend to view others through lenses of assumption, rather than for who we each are.
