CNEWA’s multimedia magazine ONE once again took top honors at the Catholic Press Association awards dinner on Friday. The magazine won 17 awards — including First Place for General Excellence — at the Catholic Media Conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

In singling out the exceptional work of the magazine, the judges wrote:

Religious journalism at its best is an exchange of ideas. ONE magazine epitomizes exchanging ideas in that each issue is filled with a variety of ideas and issues, big and small, extravagant and simple. The stories are complete, well written and interesting. This is a great example of a link between missions and those of us at home.

Impressive visually and textually, ONE presents a global perspective on the need and efficacy of Catholic mission activity. Each issue enriches the reader with a broad view of the world wide Catholic community, its needs, challenges and achievements. Perhaps the most powerful tool in its communication array is the use of unforgettable, poignant photographs that draw one to the well-written text.

The panel of judges was comprised of journalism professors from Marquette University and Spring Hill College — many with extensive professional experience in the field.
