Call us winners! This weekend, Creative Loafing took home three 2010 North Carolina Press Association Awards.
Congratulations goes to Senior Editor/Arts Editor/Film Critic Matt Brunson for his second place award for headline writing; Brunson was honored based his ability to craft snarky and sharp headlines like: "Hairy Plodder" (regarding the film The Wolfman) and "Suffer a Jett" (which teased a review of The Runaways).
Congratulations also goes to columnist John Grooms, author of the weekly Boomer With Attitude and daily blog posts on the CLog, for his second place award for lighter columns (like "Neighborhood Heroine Patrol") and his third place award for serious columns (for pieces such as "Fully Human").
The N.C. Press Association hosts its statewide editorial competition on an annual basis. Newspapers are judged in six different divisions depending on circulation. Creative Loafing thanks the association for recognizing the great work cranked out by our staff each and every day.
