Advocate wins four more journalism awards

The South Carolina United Methodist Advocate has been honored with another four journalism excellence awards, bringing their total to 108 wins since 2010.

These latest are from the United Methodist Association of Communicators. The Advocate was among hundreds of United Methodist communicators and publications honored during an awards gala Feb. 22, the eve before the special called session of General Conference.

The newspaper garnered a first place win in the print publications/newspaper category, as well as three writing awards for Editor Jessica Brodie: first place in news article writing for “Ready to Respond,” third place in news article writing for “Advent Strong” and third place in feature article writing for “Blessing Boxes.”

"Editor Jessica Brodie has set high standards of excellence for the Advocate, and 108 awards from outside organizations, including these four, attest to that," said Dr. Bill Click, chair of the Advocate’s board of trustees.

South Carolina Conference Production Coordinator Matt Brodie also took home a second place win in video production for his video, “Salkehatchie 40th Anniversary.”

Also at the event, the group honored its 2019 Hall of Fame inductee, Dr. Daniel R. Gangler, and two Communicators of the Year, Mary Catherine Phillips and Tim Tanton.
