Sun Recognized Again for Coverage of 2015 Protests

by | Apr 9, 2016

The Baltimore Sun has been recognized again for coverage of the 2015 unrest following the death of Freddie Gray, as well as for a series following students at Patterson High School who recently immigrated to Baltimore.

According to The Sun, the newspaper’s staff received the first-place National Headliner Award for spot news in the daily newspaper category for “Baltimore Riots and the Freddie Gray case.”

The journalism organization Investigative Reporters & Editors also honored The Sun’s Gray coverage, citing the investigations triggered by the breaking news. In March, The Sun’s coverage earned the American Society of News Editors’ breaking-news writing award and the community service photojournalism award.

Other organizations also have recognized The Sun’s coverage of the Gray unrest, including the Society for News Design for both print and online coverage, the White House News Photographers Association and the Online News Association.
