    May 4 2011 by BR staff

    The Baptist Communicators Association announced the winners of its annual W.C. Fields awards competition at an April 29 banquet in Alpharetta, Ga.

    Among the winners were employees of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC), Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina (BCH) and Biblical Recorder.

    The awards competition is named in honor of Fields, chief public relations officer for the SBC Executive Committee from 1959-87. The three-day gathering provides professional development opportunities for communications professionals with Southern Baptist entities, universities and churches.

    Among the seven grand prizes, two went to N.C. Baptist contenders.

    K Brown, BSC director of photography, won the M.E. Dodd Memorial Award for radio, television, film and video, named in memory of the pastor of First Baptist Church in Shreveport, La., who was a pioneer in radio ministry. His project was titled “Clean Water for Bihar, India.”

    Dianna L. Cagle, assistant managing editor for the Biblical Recorder, received the Frank Burkhalter Award for newswriting, named in honor of the Southern Baptist Convention’s first publicity director for the Cooperative Program and longtime professor of journalism at Baylor University. Cagle won for “Closing Churches,” a package of stories that ran March 27, 2010. 

    Of the seven categories, there were N.C. winners in four of them:
    • Audio-Visual Communications Division — Brown won two first place awards, one for a feature production less than 15 minutes and another for a promotional video. Each was about “Clean Water for Bihar, India.”
    • Photography Division — Brown won two awards in this division. His “By the Light” single image won first place for “Other Media — Print.” His “First Taste” single image won second place in “Other Media — Electronic.”
    • News Writing Division — Cagle won first place in “Series or Package” for newpapers for her “Closing Churches.” Jim Edminson, editor of Charity & Children for BCH, won second place for his first-person column “Paw Paw Loved the Saints.”
    • Design Division — Carly Conley, a BSC graphic designer, won first place in promotion and advertising for her “2011 Cooperative Program Calendar.” Edminson also received a first place award in “General Design and Illustration” for his quasquicentennial logo for BCH.
    There were three honorable mentions in the design category:
    • Edminson for his quasquicentennial mascot logo.
    • Leslie Crane, BSC senior graphic designer for her Bible drill brochure.
    • Crane again for “Praying Toward His Passion” a direct mail piece.
