City Pages nominated for 12th SPJ award

Earlier this month, we learned that the Minnesota Society of Professional Journalists had awarded City Pages honors in 11 categories of writing, photography, online journalism, and multimedia production. It turns out that our Jeff Severns Guntzel is up for a 12th award.

Severns Guntzel's piece "The Wedding Crashers," about churches' response to gay marriage, is a winner in the "Short Feature" news category for papers with a circulation of 50,000 or higher.

The order of finish will be announced at the 2008 awards banquet on June 12. In 2005, CP won six SPJ awards, and in 2006 the paper won eight.
