The “Best of the Christian Press” awards were presented April 29, 2011, at ACP’s annual conference in Chicago.
For Faith & Leadership’s “award of excellence” for best independent website or e-zine, the judge wrote, “This site is the best in its class, offering a full range of online features, interesting story ideas and excellent writing. The individual articles are very good, and they’re enhanced with video, slideshows, Q&As, related articles, links and additional resources. It’s hard to stop reading. One good story leads to another, and another, and another. The nice design elements — use of color and fonts — add an extra level of quality.”
Faith & Leadership also received awards of excellence for “Body and soul” by Kate Rugani (theological or scholarly article); “Advent aloud” by Christine Parton Burkett (professional resource); and “He lingers in my presence” by Mark Ralls (theological reflections: short format).
Awards of merit were given to the biographical profile “I want to be like them” by Bob Wells and for Call & Response, Faith & Leadership’s companion blog, which was edited through April by Jason Byassee. Jessamyn Rubio was awarded an honorable mention for the illustration “Reimagining Power.”
