Star-Bulletin takes
home lion’s share
of journalism’s
Pa‘i awards

By Mary Adamski
Star-Bulletin

Tapa

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin was named tops in 10 categories and collected a total of 21 trophies in the annual Hawaii Publishers Association Pa'i awards presentation.

The afternoon newspaper swept the "excellence in design" division and took first-place awards for editorial series, editorial column, sports reporting, business and industry reporting, arts and entertainment, feature photography, essay photography, informational graphics and for its Web site.

Awards presented yesterday at the Hawaii Publishers Association annual luncheon at Hilton Hawaiian Village also included two first places and a total of nine trophies to the Honolulu Advertiser, two first places among three awards won by the Hawaii Tribune-Herald and one first place among five awards to the Maui News.

Mainland journalism professionals, including writers, photographers, editors and professors, judge the entries.

Among the Honolulu Star-Bulletin awards was third prize in the Business and Industry category for the staff coverage of plans by its owners to close the 117-year-old newspaper.

The judges commented: "It was a huge story and the Star-Bulletin covered it in a masterful way. We judges were particularly struck with the unique mission the Star-Bulletin's newsroom was called to undertake: in effect, to cover itself in a complex scenario that affected the entire state. Professional discipline, accuracy, restraint and good sense had to have been close and constant companions to all the editors and writers. The entire story was covered with care and courage."
