Sun columnist, designers win national awards

March 26, 2002

Sun columnist Dan Rodricks and three designers at the newspaper have won national awards for their work.

Rodricks won a National Headliner Award in the category of best local interest column written on a variety of subjects. The contest is one of the oldest and largest recognizing journalistic excellence.

Rodricks won for five columns published last year on subjects ranging from Cal Ripken Jr.'s retirement to a friendship that formed between a Baltimore County fire station and one in New York City that later lost firefighters in the terrorist attacks Sept. 11.

The designers won five awards from the Society for News Design in its annual international newspaper design contest.

Peter Yuill received Awards of Excellence for his Arts & Society cover on the "Oscars: Dazed and Confused in Hollywood," and for a travel page, "No Place Like Home."

Jay Judge received two awards for his Preakness cover. And Joannah Hill received an Award of Excellence for her Arts & Society cover on "The Amazing Afterlife of Johnny Eck."
