Award-winning season for Record-Review


The New York Press Association showered The Record-Review with advertising awards at its 2014 spring convention held last weekend in Saratoga Springs. The Record-Review’s staff was also honored with awards for editorial writing and photography. Art director Katherine Potter swept an array of advertising honors, including a first-place tie for the organization’s top prize.

Editor R.J. Marx was awarded second prize, division 2, for his editorials, while The Record-Review’s Anthony Mancini won second place, division 2, for best spot news photo.

At the event, 158 newspapers were represented, with 2,760 submitted entries. The 2013 Better Newspaper Contest was judged by members of the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association.

The Record-Review tied for the John J. Evans Award for Advertising Excellence, the state association’s top advertising award, with the Epoch Times, an international publication based in New York City. This marks the second year in a row that The Record-Review has won this award and the seventh time overall. The award is named after John J. Evans, a past president of the press association.

The Record-Review won first place awards for best ad campaign, division 1 for ads for jeweler Robin McCormick; best small space ad, division 1 for Katonah Pasta; and best color ad, division 1 for a half-page ad for Intentional Wellness & Yoga Center.

The paper also won second place awards for best ad campaign for Renwick/Sotheby’s International Realty; best editorial and best spot news photo. Third-place awards were given for best small space ad for Steger’s Paper Mill and best large space ad for Beginnings.

As a group, The Record-Review and its sister publications, The Scarsdale Inquirer and The Rivertowns Enterprise, was third of the top five group or chain newspapers in the state.

Participating newspapers competed for awards in 63 categories and for Newspaper of the Year, the Stuart C. Dorman Award for Editorial Excellence and the John J. Evans Award for Advertising Excellence. 422 awards were presented during NYPA’s Spring Convention 2014 on April 4 and 5. The entries were judged by members of the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association. The winners were determined based on the following:

Editor R.J. Marx was honored for three submitted editorials, including an analysis of Bedford’s water supply, “Tapping in: A century later,” in which judges wrote: “The water editorial was well-written ... A solid opinion piece.” Of his editorial discussing the Katonah-Lewisboro School District, “The seamy underside of school district politics,” judges wrote: “Marx tactfully criticized the school district staff, administration and board for the black eye they all caused over a teacher-student incident. The author also did a fi ne job of condensing the state report to give an outsider understanding. Well done.” In reviewing “A delicate balance,” a piece on deer management, a judge wrote: “The author managed to appease both nature lovers and hunters. More seriously, the author’s suggestions to manage the deer population sound reasonable to fi x the limitations of the hunting program.” 

The Record-Review’s Anthony R. Mancini won second place for his image after an attempted abduction in Katonah in April, in which two good Samaritans stepped in to rescue a woman and keep an assailant at bay. “This image is a good example of following the action as the story develops and getting the photo that tells the story,” said judges.

The Record-Review’s advertising was dominant throughout the contest, as Ms. Potter won first place for best small space ad, division 1. “Great ad!” judges wrote of the Katonah Pasta ad. “The artwork immediately draws your attention but the copy is why readers will visit the restaurant. Very clean and simple.”

Ms. Potter also won third place in the small space ad category for Steger’s Paper Mill. The judges wrote, “Great artwork and header. This is a crisp, clean ad that contains a lot of information, but looks like a lot of fun.”

In awarding the prize for best color ad for Intentional Wellness & Yoga Center in Katonah to The Record-Review, judges said: “Kudos towards white space to let ad breathe, complimentary color selection of text to primary image, clean font family and use of logo like bullets in logo.”

Judges praised Ms. Potter as they awarded her both first and second place for best advertising campaign, division 1.

In awarding the second-place prize for the Renwick/Sotheby’s International Realty ads, the judges said, “Campaign gives each property the same elegance. Great presentation of the photos allowing them to describe rather than words.”

Ms. Potter also won an award for third place, division 2, in the best large space ad category. “The design, text, and colors gives the ad a very fresh appeal. Looks like a great boutique!” wrote the judges.
