CL Wins NCPA Awards

Boykin, Servatius and Brunson rake 'em in

comment
Last week, the North Carolina Press Association announced the winners of the 2003 NCPA News, Editorial and Photojournalism Contest, and Charlotte's Creative Loafing came away with three prizes. Since there isn't a separate category within the NCPA contest rules for alternative newsweeklies, we competed in the Community Newspapers category. CL Reporter Sam Boykin won First Place in the News Enterprise Reporting for his story "Man of Mystery," a look at Charlotte resident David Race Bannon, who wrote a book in which he claimed to be a former assassin for Interpol. Reporter and columnist Tara Servatius won Second Place in the Investigative Reporting category for "Mecklenburg Jailhouse Blues," her story on the beatings suffered by some inmates at the hands of guards at the county jail. Film Editor Matt Brunson won First Place in the new category of Headline Writing -- which was no surprise to us, as Mr. Movies also goes by the name of Headline King around the office. We're proud of our three award winners and look forward to more great work from them.
