Review-Journal rakes in awards from Nevada Press Association

The Las Vegas Review-Journal and its staff earned top honors Saturday in the Nevada Press Association’s 2012 "Better Newspaper Contest," winning first place for general excellence, community service and freedom of the press.

"Comprehensive, professional compilation of everything a newspaper reader is looking for" said judges who recognized the Review-Journal for general excellence, the contest’s top award.

Nevada’s largest daily newspaper won the community service and freedom of the press categories for its series on police shootings. The five-day series, titled "Deadly Force: When Las Vegas Police Shoot, and Kill," highlighted the Metropolitan Police Department’s reluctance to hold officers accountable for mistakes and unwillingness to adopt policies to protect its officers and the public. Las Vegas police had 12 fatal shootings last year, a record for one year for the department.

Lawrence Mower, lead reporter on the project dubbed by judges as "watchdog journalism," also was named the state’s outstanding journalist.

"Although there were several fine journalists in this category, Mower stood out for the work he did on the significant, detailed series ‘Deadly Force.’ True investigative work, thorough and well-written," judges commented.

Review-Journal staff also earned the top prize for best website and best multimedia story for the "Deadly Force" series.

The winners were announced Saturday night at the newspaper organization’s annual convention, held in Las Vegas this year. The Review-Journal won 27 first-place awards, 24 second-place awards and 17 third-place awards.

Education reporter Trevon Milliard was honored as the state’s journalist of merit, which recognizes a reporter with less than five years experience. Judges commended Milliard for "excellent writing and research."

Photographer Jessica Ebelhar garnered firsts in three categories, including photo of the year for capturing the fiery crash that killed Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon during the IZOD IndyCar World Championships at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Ebelhar was praised for "remarkable composure during a terrifying moment." She also placed first for best news photo coverage and best feature photo.

Review-Journal publisher Bob Brown and Chris Trares were honored with a first place in advertising general excellence. The two, along with Chelle Bize, also took first place for best special section or campaign-advertising.

Paul Harasim was honored for best local column and Ron Kantowski won for best sports column. Carol Cling earned a first for best critical writing, Steve Bornfeld took first for best entertainment writing and Glenn Cook earned first place for best editorial writing.

Reporter Francis McCabe won first place for best news feature about an Arbor View High School student who was slain as she neared safety.

Reporter Jennifer Robison took first for best business news story with a piece about Apple co-founder Ronald Wayne and his reaction to the death of Steve Jobs.

Reporter Tim O’Reiley won best business feature with his story "LV Air is looking like latest fly-by-night plan."

Mike Johnson won first for best information graphic with an entry on The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.

The first for best illustrated photo went to K.M. Cannon. John Locher won the best sports photo category.

The Review-Journal’s Theresa Nedens won first place for best large-space ad. The paper’s SW Ad Team won first place for best black-and-white ad. A first for best multicolor ad went to the paper’s NE Ad Team. Julian DeCoite took first for best in-house promotion.

Las Vegas Sun writers Paul Takahashi, Dave Berns, Leila Navidi, and staff were honored for story of the year for their coverage of struggling schools in the Clark County School District.

The Las Vegas Sun has taken their public stewardship a step further, by taking the long-form narrative and applying it to a digital format, with video and graphical information, not just giving a quick and easy snapshot, but a long-term overview of complex matters that are at the core of the public interest.
