Media Watch: NYS Associated Press Winners Announced

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

The New York State Associated Press Association has announced the winners in its annual state-wide newspaper writing competition, and a number of local writers made the grade:

In the under 25,000 circulation division, Bill Ackerbauer of The Leader-Herald in Gloversville took top honors in the Arts/Entertainment Writing category for his story “Fiddling in the Old Country,” about one of our fave area musicians Dick Solberg (aka the Sun Mountain Fiddler).

In the 25,000-50,000 circulation division, The Post Star in Glens Falls took second and third place in the Arts/Entertainment category for Meg Hagerty’s “Potholders are selling like hotcakes” (about fiber artist Maria Wulf) and Doug Gruse’s “Artistsโ€™ work explores environment and politics” (about the Tang Museum’s exhibit, “Environment and Object – Recent African Art”), respectively.

And in the 50,000-125,000 circulation division, The Times Union’s Steve Barnes earned a third place Arts/Entertainment nod for “Lambert’s voice soars,” his review of Adam Lambert’s concert at the Palace Theatre last summer.

Congrats go out to all the winners…
