The newspaper association held its annual awards ceremony on Friday at the Madison Marriot West hotel in Middleton.
These Daily Reporter employees were honored:
- Kevin Harnack, staff photographer, took home a second-place prize for a feature photo titled “Pipe Dreams.”
- Joe Yovino, editor, and Rick Benedict, new media specialist, took home a second-place award for a digital project on roundabouts and a third-place award for a digital project on Wisconsin’s labor shortage.
- Dan Shaw, associate editor, won a second-place award for a general news story on a union leader’s defense of a political ad that some perceived as a low blow aimed at a candidate for the state Assembly.
- Alex Zank, construction reporter, received an honorable mention for a general news story on the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer.
The Daily Reporter, a five-day-a-week newspaper covering Wisconsin’s development, real estate and construction industry, competed in the association’s Division C, which is for daily newspapers with a circulation of 6,999 or fewer. The WNA’s top prize in Division C went to the Watertown Daily Times.
