Four individual advertising awards led to a Sweepstakes Award for The Holyoke Enterprise in the 2010 Colorado Better Newspaper Contest of the Colorado Press Association (CPA).
In addition to the advertising honors, the Enterprise earned two awards in the design division—one for informational graphics and another for a photo essay.
Awards were presented Saturday, Feb. 19 at the 133rd annual CPA convention at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.
Wisconsin Press Association judged this year’s contest, with The Holyoke Enterprise competing in the Class 2 Weeklies division for newspapers with circulation 1,751-4,000.
Contributing to the Advertising Sweepstakes award were four individual ad awards, earned as follows:
• First-place black and white ad, Taste of Agriculture ad in the Feb. 25, 2010 paper, designed by Darci Tomky.
• First-place advertising campaign, Homecoming Hide & Seek promotion in September 2009, by Tomky and Jes-c Brandt.
• Second-place small-space ad, “To Daddy” message from Peyton Adams to her daddy in the military, in Dec. 17, 2009 Enterprise, designed by Tomky.
• Second-place classified page or section, by Ashley Sullivan and Tomky.
Two design awards were also presented to the Enterprise at last weekend’s program.
• Third-place informational graphic for an entry featuring a weather graphic by Tomky and a CSAP graphic by Jes-c Brandt.
• Third-place photo essay, cheer clinic photos in Feb. 4, 2010 Enterprise, by Duncan Brandt.
Brandt elected vice president
At the annual CPA business meeting Thursday afternoon, Feb. 17, Enterprise publisher Brenda Brandt was elected vice president of the board for 2011-12. She has served on the board since September of 2007.
Tomky, Lee, Sullivan and Brenda Brandt participated in informative break-out sessions Friday and Saturday during the annual convention.
Much concern was voiced by publishers at the Thursday business meeting regarding the possible far-reaching recommendations regarding the University of Colorado School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
A delegation of past CPA presidents and others was selected to attend the public comment session with the Board of Regents this week.
