The Daily Bruin won a Pacemaker Saturday for the nation’s best daily college newspaper.
Pacemaker awards, considered the most prestigious honor in college journalism, are based on a paper’s content, reporting, design and art, among other factors. It was the first time in three years that The Bruin won the award in the daily, four-year category of the contest.
Several Bruin staff members also won Pacemaker awards at the annual Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisers convention in Philadelphia. Former Daily Bruin opinion editor and columnist Eitan Arom won third place for a column he wrote about UCLA’s academic freedom policy. Sam Grinberg won fifth place for an editorial cartoon focused on the FBI’s investigation of California state senator Leland Yee. Photographer Blaine Ohigashi won third place for a photo slide show about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in Malawi.
