Newspaper of the year contest

Your Central Voice garners awards


The Central Voice received top honors in the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation’s annual Newspaper of the Year contest.

In addition to being named second place for the Newspaper of the Year in our division, The Central Voice was the winner of the General Excellence Award.

“Recognition by peers let’s us know we’re on the right path,” said Frank Pizzoli, founding editor and publisher.

The Central Voice also took first place awards in Advertising Excellence, Diversity and Community Service. “We make diversity and community service part of our business mission. Many voices create The Central Voice newspaper and web site,” Pizzoli added.

In addition, second place honors were won in the categories of News Presentation Excellence, Editorial & Commentary Excellence, Best Use of Photography, and Promotion. “Media is calendars, clocks and deadlines,” Pizzoli said. “And a dedicated team who cares about every aspect of the finished product. Our team of advertisers, sales representatives, contributing writers, readers, designers, web site, and print shop is a committed group.”
Central Voice competed with top newspapers from the entire state.

The purpose of the contest is to recognize outstanding work across all departments and including all products, with an emphasis on overall excellence.
