20 awards announced for The Standard

The Alabama Press Association recently announced winners for the annual media contest for the year 2020.

The Greenville Standard has earned 20 awards so far between the editorial and advertising categories. All awards have not been announced yet.

According to Bruce Branum, the publisher, The Greenville Standard competes in Division D, which is a Non-daily newspaper (publishing less than 3 days/week) with a total paid circulation of 3,000 and below.

54 publications in Divisions A-E submitted 1,852 entries in the annual contest. The South Carolina Press Association membership judged the entries.

First place awards in many (to be announced) categories and divisions will be presented in conjunction with the 2021 APA Summer Convention banquet awards program June 26.

Branum said, “Many thanks are owed to the diligent and professional staff, free-lance columnists, subscribers and readers, advertisers, along with contributor submissions for their support of the only locally owned paper in Butler County. Without you, these awards would not have been possible.”

In the editorial contest, The Standard won three first place, six second place and four third place awards. In the advertising contest, The Standard won two first place, three second place, and two third place awards.
