Legatus wins two international press awards
ST LOUIS — Legatus’ monthly membership magazine picked up two international press awards here on June 3.
At its annual convention, the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada presented Legatus magazine with a third-place award for Best Coverage of Religious Liberty Issues for the third consecutive year. Judging is conducted “by a group of experts and Catholic press professionals,” according to CPA guidelines.
The religious liberty category called for three articles. Winning submissions included “To The Bitter End” by Judy Roberts (April 2015), “Religious Freedom and the Family” by Monsignor Joseph Schaedel (June 2015), and “Religious Liberty on the Line” by Brian Fraga (May 2015).
Judges wrote that Legatus‘ entries provided “timely coverage of important issues.”
Legatus staff writer Brian Fraga received a third place honor for his article “What Glass Ceiling?” (March 2015) in the Best Feature Article category for Professional and Special Interest magazines.
Judges wrote: “The author’s use of case study to help promote women’s issues is effective. The writing style is informal but clear, and the stories are truly inspiring.”
Legatus magazine has won 23 Catholic Press Association awards for graphic design, writing and its website since it gained CPA membership in 2005.
Founded in 1911, the Catholic Press Association is composed of 238 member newspapers, magazines, and newsletters throughout the United States and Canada. This year’s contest winners were chosen among 2,500 press submissions in dozens of categories.
