The Christian Post won four awards, including the Award of Excellence for newspaper online, in the Evangelical Press Association’s annual contest.
“This digital publication offers extensive original reporting on national and global topics of significance,” the judges wrote “The website is well organized, visually appealing, and easy to navigate.”
The Award of Excellence for Newspaper-Online News was presented Friday at the EPA Convention, held virtually this year. CP also won fifth place in the "Critical Review" category for Brandon Showalter’s review, "Our girls are being irreversibly damaged by the transgender craze;" third place in the "Reporting" category for Sam Smith’s article “Nigeria's 'genocide': Who is helping the thousands of displaced Christians?”; and fourth place in the “Cartoon” category for “Are churches more contagious than casinos?”
The EPA, which CP is a member of, describes itself as the world’s largest professional organization for the evangelical periodical publishing industry. Each year, it hosts two contests — the Awards of Excellence contest (for publications as a whole) and the Higher Goals contest (for individual pieces).
Next year's EPA Awards will be held in-person in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
