Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications today announced 26 finalists in seven categories in the fourth annual Mirror Awards. The competition drew nearly 200 entries.

“Those of us who served as judges were impressed by the depth and variety of entries,” says Joel Kaplan, associate dean in the Newhouse School, a member of the Mirror Awards Advisory Committee and a first tier judge. “While traditional journalism outlets like Vanity Fair and The New York Times continue to hold a mirror to their media colleagues, they have been joined by such content providers as 5280 magazine in Denver, Politco.com, Philadelphia Magazine and Financial Times.”

Finalists, chosen by a group of journalists and journalism educators, are:

Best Single Article—Traditional Media

Best Single Article—Digital Media

Best Profile—Traditional Media

Best Profile—Digital Media

Best Commentary—Traditional Media

Best Commentary—Digital Media

Best In-depth Piece—Traditional Media

The winners will be feted at a luncheon ceremony on Thursday, June 10, from 11:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at The Plaza Hotel, Fifth Avenue at Central Park South, New York City. CBS News’ Katie Couric will serve as emcee. Lorraine E. Branham, dean of the Newhouse School, will host the event.
