It’s Catholic Press Awards season, and we are pleased to announce that the Denver Catholic and El Pueblo Católico were honored on a national level once more this year, taking home 10 awards.
Between the two publications, the recognitions included four first place awards, four second place awards, one third place award and an honorable mention.
Highlights from the first place awards are Best Redesign for El Pueblo Católico, which switched to a gorgeous magazine format last year, and Best Chart or Information Graphic for last year’s “The Eucharist Throughout History” timeline, compiled by Vladimir Mauricio-Perez and designed by Simona Fava.
Managing Editor Aaron Lambert won a second place award for Best Editorial on a National or International Issue for his “The Shock of Forgiveness” piece, and the Denver Catholic was also recognized with a second place award for Best One-Time Issue for the Christmas Magazine that was released just before Christmas last year.
“Last year was a busy one for our team, but the quality of work and willingness to go above and beyond remained consistent,” said Aaron Lambert, managing editor of the Denver Catholic. “I am constantly amazed by the commitment and faith of the people of the publications and creative design team. These awards are very well-deserved.
“I want to thank Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila and the leadership of the Archdiocese of Denver for their support and guidance, the talented team of people I am blessed to work with for being so inspiring on a daily basis, and last but not least, the Catholic faithful of the archdiocese for entrusting us with keeping you informed about the Church and allowing us to tell your inspiring stories.”
