2019 VPA News and Advertising Contest

Front Page ( Non-Daily Group 4)Back

  • Place Name: First Place
    Contestant Name: Chesterfield Observer
    Entry Title: CO-Front Page
    Entry Credit: Larissa Tyler
    Judge Comment: Front pages are well-rounded in terms of use of art, headlines, white space and other elements to make stories stand out. The front page featuring "Pop Art" is the prime example. Simple art but well-executed, clever headline with appropriate weight for the anchor of the page and strong display. Excellent.
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: C-ville Weekly
    Entry Title: covers
    Entry Credit: Bill LeSueur, Max March
    Judge Comment: A close second in this category. Front page graphics are clearly a priority. The pig flying over the statehouse is a gem.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: Inside NoVa/Prince William
    Entry Title: Front Pages 2019
    Entry Credit: Greg Hambrick, Elisa Hernandez
    Judge Comment: The element that lifted this entry to third over several other contenders was that the design always makes the top story clear. That may seem like a small thing, but it is not.
