Finalists announced

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,, Philadelphia Magazine and Financial Times.”

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

Best Single Article—Traditional Media

Best Profile—Traditional Media

Best Commentary—Traditional Media
