For the second time within a month, The Baptist Standard received national recognition from a professional communications association.
This time, the work of Baptist Standard Publishing received four awards from the national Evangelical Press Association. Earlier, the Associated Church Press honored The Baptist Standard and CommonCall with five “Best of Christian Press” Awards.
The Evangelical Press Association presented an “award of merit” for overall excellence to the Baptist Standard in the denominational digital publication category. The award specifically recognized the work of Editor Marv Knox, Managing Editor Ken Camp, Staff Writer George Henson, Webmaster John Rutledge and Marketing Director Julie Sorrels.
In the association’s “Higher Goals” competition, which recognizes individual aspects of a publication, the Baptist Standard received three awards.
Leah Allen, a communications intern who served with the Baptist Standard during summer 2013, received first place in the student writer category for her article, “Aging Dallas Church Commits Facility to Kingdom Purposes.”
Knox’s article, “Get Ready for All those Babies,” received second place in the editorial category.
