ATLANTA – The Daily Bruin received 42 awards at the Fall National College Media Convention.

The convention, which was held Sunday through Thursday at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, brought together student journalists and student media advisers from across the country. In addition to hosting workshops and panels, convention organizers announced the winners of awards given by two college media associations, the Associated Collegiate Press and the College Media Association.

The Daily Bruin staff, led by editor in chief Victoria Li, received 38 awards, including three organizational awards, for its work during the 2022-23 school year. The Online Pacemaker, which was given by the ACP, honors excellence in The Bruin’s web platform. Two organizational Pinnacle awards, distributed by the CMA, recognized The Bruin as first place in the Multi-Weekly Newspaper category and second place for its paperwide diversity initiatives.

Awards were also announced for many individual pieces of work. Two Daily Bruin staffers received multiple placements in the same award category from the ACP. Jon Christon, an alumnus and the 2021-22 Sports editor, won the Sports Game Story category with “UCLA football loses tight battle to crosstown rival USC” and received third place for “Another last-second shot from Gonzaga sinks UCLA men’s basketball.” Samia Saad, a Cartoons staffer and fourth-year design media arts student, won the Editorial Cartoon category with “Elon’s new toy” and received fourth place in the same category for “Carnival house.”

The Bruin was also recognized for its investigative work, with “Disabled students report chronic delays, frustration with BruinAccess van service” receiving first place in the individual Pinnacle award category for Best Enterprise Coverage of Diversity and “Dropping the ball: Students allege mismanagement within UCLA Club Sports” taking home third place for Best Sports Investigative Story.

Designs from The Bruin received recognition as well, with the fall 2022 cover of PRIME, The Bruin’s quarterly magazine, taking second place in the ACP’s Magazine Cover category. The Bruin also received two awards for the design of its print newspaper and two additional awards for the print and online design of PRIME.

The Bruin’s spring Opinion section package, focused on columnists’ hopes and fears for the future, won first place for the Best Special Section, 4 Pages or Less category in the Pinnacles.

In addition to its 38 awards for the 2022-23 school year, The Bruin took home four honors in the ACP’s Best of Show awards, available to student media outlets sending delegates to the conference for their work thus far in the 2023-24 school year. As an organization, The Bruin earned second place in the Best Newspaper/Newsmagazine category.

The Bruin received 21 awards at last year’s event.
