Brio magazine and Fathom each captured their third consecutive First Place award in the fourth annual Best in Class contest.
Four other publications won a First Place award again after missing out last year: Answers, Christianity Today, Common Good and The Christian Chronicle.
Six publications captured a First Place award for the first time: Caring Magazine, Fusion Family, Mutuality, Next Step Disciple, Prayer Connect and Voice of the Martyrs.
All First Place winners will receive an engraved crystal award.
Each category was judged by two judges with the judges’ scores averaged to determine placement.
The Best in Class contest is conducted each summer with print entries based on circulation rather than the categories used for the Awards of Excellence. Entries were split with a balanced number of entries into nine circulation ranges, plus additional categories based on format: newspapers and websites (which required a digital membership to enter). Each category was judged by two judges with the judges’ scores averaged to determine placement.
