Midwest Jesuits Win Seven Catholic Press Association Awards

June 19, 2018 — The Midwest Jesuits received seven Catholic Press Association Awards at the 2018 Catholic Media Conference, including four first-place wins, for communications and media achievements in 2017. 

Jeremy Langford, the Provincial Assistant (VP) for Advancement and Communications, was named the Communications Director of the Year for his work leading the communications department of the province while also serving as Provincial Assistant for Advancement. 

"The Midwest Jesuits use a variety of approaches and platforms to build community," the Catholic Press Association judges said. "Jesuits Magazine offers a range of reporting and first-person storytelling, and the website gathers many resources for prayer and reflection, including videos. The website for the With Others. For Others. capital campaign provides a compelling call to action. The organization's Facebook page also has grown dramatically in the past year, providing another avenue for conversation."

Jesuits Magazine, a publication of the province, earned a total of four awards, including first place in the category of Magazine/Newsletter of the Year: Religious Order for the second year in a row. 

"Crisp, clean, bright, engaging, from the paper to the art, photos, editorial content and design and layout, it is a magazine that beckons readers," said the CPA judges' comments. "Easy to navigate through excellent use of callout boxes, pull quotes, headings and subheads that recap essence and lure reader (sp) into stories. Exceptional presentation."

The feature story on the With Others. For Others. campaign , which appeared in the 2017 Fall/Winter magazine, won first place for best feature article in a religious order magazine, and third place for best design with photographs in the general excellence category. That magazine also featured the 2017 Jesuit formation timeline, which took third place in the category of Best Ad Copywriting. 

Jesuits Magazine is published three times per year. If you'd like to receive a free printed copy, please click here to sign up. 

On the digital side, the Midwest Jesuits won first place in the Best Facebook Post category and took second place for Best General Publisher website.

"Powerful, visually compelling photography combined with concise text copy with a clear call to action," said the CPA remarking on the Best Facebook Post. "Excellent use of social media planning to extend reach."
