NEW ORLEANS — The Oxford EAGLE picked up eight first-place awards and 23 overall in the 2014 Mississippi Press Association Better Newspaper Contest at the annual MPA Banquet on Saturday.
The EAGLE, which competes in Class C (daily newspapers with circulations of 9,000 or less), finished second overall in General Excellence behind the Meridian Star and ahead of the Greenwood Commonwealth. The EAGLE has been first or second in General Excellence in each of the last eight years.
“I’m very proud of our staff and what they accomplished this past year,” said Publisher Tim Phillips. “This is a reflection, too, of our readers and advertisers who help make this community newspaper what it is.”
Bruce Newman again dominated the photo categories, claiming four first-place awards, four seconds and a pair of thirds.
More details about all of the awards can be found in Monday’s EAGLE.
