The MDDC Press Awards confirmed what we already knew: CQ Roll Call is awesome.
CQ Roll Call brought five awards to Capitol Hill. Hill Navigator columnist Rebecca Gale was awarded second place for business reporting for “The Other Back Room: Breastfeeding on Capitol Hill” (Roll Call, Feb. 2, 2014). Roll Call’s annual Wealth of Congress project, which calulates the 50 richest members of Congress, won both first and second place in the category of best use of interactive media. Staff honored for this award include Jay Hunter, Bo Huttinger, Cyra Master and Video Editor JM Rieger. Roll Call cartoonist RJ Matson won first place for best editorial cartoon with “Cantor at a Loss” (Sept. 14, 2014). The entire Roll Call staff was recognized for excellence in social media reporting, receiving first place for the innovative State of the Union in Three Words project (#SOTUin3Words), which launched in 2014 and repeated in 2015.
Congrats to the winners and the entire staff!
