Freelancers Brandon Thorp and Penn Bullock were honored for short form news stories about anti-homosexual expert George Rekers, who took a vacation with a rent boy. And editor Chuck Strouse, who was also elected to the group's board of directors, was named best in the nation for a selection of political columns. The Voice took top honors in investigative reporting, staff blog, and music blog.
