COLUMBIA, Mo. — The Missouri School of Journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia announced winners of the 2007 Missouri Lifestyle Journalism Awards. Well-known repeat winners include The Washington Post, the San Jose Mercury News and the Daily Camera in Boulder, Colo.; relative newcomers include The Roanoke Times and The Sacramento Bee.

Judges of the more than 1,200 entries wrote some of the following about the winners:

  • “The quality of the writing, photography and design compare favorably with most national magazines.”
  • “In the soft features, it's elegant.”
  • “…this narrative demonstrates the great continuing strength of the newspaper in telling a good story.”

The Missouri Lifestyle Journalism Awards began in 1960 as the Penney-Missouri Awards. Winners receive $1,000 in prize money and a lead crystal vase trophy.
