The Evangelical Press Association (EPA) announced the winners of its annual journalism contest at a May 2-4 conference in Colorado Springs. More than 300 publications, 10 from Christianity Today International, are members of the EPA. The EPA designates two kinds of awards: "Awards of Excellence" for a magazine as a whole, and "Higher Goals" awards for issues, articles, columns, design, and other categories. The organization honored Christianity Today with 11 awards this year, including an award of merit in the general category for magazines. The winners are listed below.
