Humber Et Cetera, the campus newspaper run by Humber’s journalism students, has won 13 awards in 12 categories in the New York-based Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Gold Circle Awards competition.
The paper, which won for the 2011-2012 school year, garnered three first place wins in Overall Design (Tabloid Format) for the student staff, collectively, Page One Design (Tabloid Format) for Marlee Greig, and Editorial Writing for Adam Carter.
The honours from the CSPA are just the latest in the accolades for the 2011-2012 Humber Et Cetera. The paper also won first prize in the Outstanding Campus Newspaper category from the Canadian Community Newspapers Association, with the University of Toronto’s Varsity and Mount Royal College’s Reflector taking second and third place respectively.
Carter, who was one of two managing editors for Humber Et Cetera during first semester last year, says the awards mean a lot because the competition in both cases was steep.
“We were in some pretty illustrious company, so it feels great to win,” he writes from Hamilton, where he now works as a reporter for CBC. “My mom is already harassing me to get something on paper so she can frame it.”
Humber Et Cetera is published 11 times per term in fall and winter, and is available at the North and Lakeshore campuses.
