Current earns two awards in SPJ Best of Journalism contest


Current Publishing earned two awards at the Society of Professional Journalists’ annual Best of Journalism award banquet April 26 in Indianapolis.

Current in Carmel Managing Editor Ann Marie Shambaugh earned third place in the Investigative Reporting category for publications with a circulation above 30,000 for her entry, “Sexual abuse alleged at Panama mission.” The story ran in Current in Carmel and Current in Zionsville on March 13, 2018.

Cartoonist Tim Campbell won second place in the Editorial Cartoon category for a selection of his work, which ran in Current and the Washington Post syndicate. Campbell also received an honorable mention in the National Press Foundation’s Clifford K. and James T. Berryman Award for Editorial Cartoons earlier this year.

“While we don’t produce newspapers or content for awards, it is gratifying for us to see our colleagues and their works rewarded,” said Steve Greenberg, Current Publishing executive vice president and general manager, speaking for himself and President and Publisher Brian Kelly. “What Ann Marie and Tim have achieved is noteworthy, and we are proud and thankful to have them in the Current family.”
