JT Wins Top Honors


The Baltimore Jewish Times took top honors at the MDDC Press Association’s Editorial Awards luncheon held May 1 at the BWI Westin hotel in Linthicum.
Beating out such titles as The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun, the JT’s editor-in-chief, Joshua Runyan, along with digital media editor Melissa Gerr and copy editor Michael Marlow won Best in Show for headline writing for “Son of a Stitch,” an article about a sewing machine repairman that appeared in the March 28, 2014 edition of the magazine.
Freelancer Amy Lynwander, who wrote “Son of a Stitch,” placed first in the magazine’s division for profile feature writing, while former reporter Heather Norris placed first for state government reporting with “Being Purple,” an Oct. 3, 2014 cover story about moderate voters in last year’s gubernatorial election.
The JT’s sister publication, the Washington Jewish Week, also took top honors in the competition, winning Best in Show for religion reporting and first place for medical/science reporting.
