At last week’s Alabama Press Association (APA) Summer Convention, The Blount Countian won three awards in the Better Newspaper Contest.
The Blount Countian won first place in Class C for “Best News Photo” for “A warm welcome home” (right) from Jan. 27 last year. We also won second place for our year-long economic coverage, a first for the paper in this category.
In addition to the editorial awards, The Blount Countian also won third place in Class C for the football special section in the Best Regularly Scheduled Special Section category.
The APA Summer Convention was held at Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach.
