    • Chelsea Hackney – 3rd Place, Editorial, SA legitimacy hinges, Comments: Strong evocative writing that made one care about the issues. Well reasoned arguments, clearly defined opinions and unequivocal calls to action.
    • Matthew Woodrow – 3rd Place, Editorial Page Design, NYC Mosque …, Comments: Some of the entries could have benefitted from an extra proofreading before entry. I preferred pages that had varying column shapes and sizes rather than, for example, two or three equal-sized opinion columns running side-by-side down the page. That format works with “pro and con” debate packages but not necessarily with differing content.
