The Echo took first place awards in non-deadline story, reviews, original cartoon and two advertisement categories, and received third place overall in the general excellence category.
“This year's awards are a reflection of the level of talent our team had last year. We were so lucky to have journalists with so much talent and experience, and the awards individuals received this year really reflected that,” said Sarah Bricker-Hunt, past editor-in-chief of the Echo. “The general excellence award is especially meaningful to our team as a whole, including all the writers, editors, photographers, advertising staff and graphic design crew.”
Michael Greenlee, of Dearborn, won first place in both non-deadline story and original cartoon.
Ad designer Lisa Dubicki, of Dearborn, won four awards in the various advertising categories, including first place in both black-and-white ad more than one-half page and spot color display ad. She also took third place in black-and-white ad, less than one-half page, and display ad promotion.
The other first place winner was Drew Dorian, of Brooklyn, who won for reviews.
The Echo and Echo staff also won awards in investigative reporting, editorial, columns, overall newspaper design, news page design, feature page design, sports page design, special ad section, and marketing and promotion.
