PBN wins NEPA headline honors

Posted:


Providence Business News was named a winner in The New England Press Association’s 2006 Better Newspaper Contest for consistent accomplishment in the "demanding and exacting craft" of headline writing.

Of the PBN, which was No. 1 in the Weekly 2 division, contest judges said: “Precision matters in all headlines, but imprecision in a business-related headline can lead to serious and complicated consequences.

“The headline writers at the Providence Business News write with clarity and a refreshing crispness. The headlines in this paper don’t have to be read twice to understand them. ... They offer a little flair at the right time."

Other local publications also took home top honors in the yearly contest.

They included: The South County Independent of Wakefield (newspaper of the year, general excellence, niche publication); The Standard Times of New Bedford (headline writing, photo illustration, niche publication); The Narragansett Times (government reporting, editorial writer); The Taunton Call (government reporting, general news story); The Call in Woonsocket (spot news photo, sports photo, personality photo, coverage of a racial or ethnic issue, local election coverage); The Sun Chronicle (pictorial photo); The North-East Independent of North Kingstown (humor columnist); The Herald News of Fall River (niche publication, photographer of the year).

The full news release, listing winners in every category, is available at www.nepa.org.
