2018 RCC Awards

I've been in Atlanta for the annual convention of the Religion Communicators Council. Last night, the RCC announced its annual DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Awards that recognize excellence in religious communication and public relations. I received four awards for work at Word&Way: one "Award of Excellence" (top category place) and three "Award of Merit" award (second category). The awards recognize work published in 2017:

Award of Excellence - overall local/regional magazine
Award of Merit - local/regional magazine single issue (August issue)
Award of Merit - news writing series (15 years of Missouri Baptist lawsuits, August issue)
Award of Merit - digital photo series (Cuba, December issue)

I previously won three RCC awards in 2017, three in 2016, and one in 2010 for work at Word&Way, Churchnet, and EthicsDaily.com. But this year marked the first time Word&Way has been recognized overall.

I'm thankful to everyone who supports our award-winning journalism: simplechurchgiving.net/wordandway.
