The Boston Globe received top-10 honors in the daily, Sunday, and special section categories at the Associated Press Sports Editors’ annual sports journalism contest at Orlando, Fla.
The Globe was one of only four newspapers in the over-175,000 circulation category to sweep the section awards.
Boston.com earned top-10 honors in the multimedia division for an interactive about the best Red Sox players ever. It was previously announced that Boston.com was named top-10 in the APSE sports web site contest in the more than two million monthly unique visitors category.
The Globe also had five top-10 writing awards: Peter Abraham, Amalie Benjamin, Nick Cafardo, Sean Smith, Chad Finn, Daigo Fujiwara, and Javier Zarracina for their work on the injuries the Red Sox sustained in 2010; Dan Shaughnessy for commentary; Bob Hohler won in explanatory (downfall of the 2011 Red Sox) and investigative (sexual abuse allegations of tennis Hall of Famer Bob Hewitt); and Greg A. Bedard in beat reporting for coverage of the Patriots.
