Daily earns sweepstakes, other awards in contest


ROANOKE -- Northern Virginia Daily news and advertising staff members received 46 awards for excellence in advertising, writing, photography and newspaper design Saturday during a Virginia Press Association conference.

The association, which met at the Hotel Roanoke, also presented its prestigious sweepstakes award to the Daily, honoring the newspaper for accumulating the most points in the 2011 editorial awards competition.

The Daily had 55 points out of a possible 245 to win the sweepstakes award. This year's win marks the 12th year in a row and the 21st time in the last 24 years the Daily has taken home the sweepstakes award. The Daily, which competes with other Virginia newspapers with a daily circulation of up to 20,000, scored high in the writing and art/photo divisions.

Other daily sweepstakes winners were The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, in the dailies circulation class of 70,000 or more, and the Free Lance Star of Fredericksburg, in the dailies circulation class between 20,000 and 70,000.

The sweepstakes winner for specialty publications was Style Weekly of Richmond. The Loudoun Times-Mirror of Leesburg won the sweepstakes for non-dailies with a circulation greater than 10,000, and The Eastern Shore News of Tasley won for non-dailies with a circulation between 5,000 and 10,000.

Members of the Illinois Press Association judged editorial and advertising contest entries.
