ALBANY — The Times Union won 11 Awards for Excellence for 2021 from the state News Publishers Association in categories that included breaking news, special sections, opinion writing, headline writing, page design and photography.
Competing in the 50,000-75,000 circulation category, the paper won the Distinguished Breaking News Coverage prize for its work on former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s resignation last August.
NYNPA honored two of the Times Union’s special sections: last summer’s edition of Upstate Traveler as Best Features Supplement and a Black History Month section from February 2021 as Distinguished News Supplement.
The paper’s photo staff took the top prize in Distinguished News Photography for coverage of the clearing of an activists’ encampment outside the Albany Police Deprtment’s South Station in April 2021. Most of the action was shot by Paul Buckowski, with additional images by Lori Van Buren and reporters Rob Gavin and Eduardo Medina.
