Newspapers — large and small — not only continue to battle to keep printing in uncertain time, but they also battle each other once a year in the CNPA’s Better Newspaper Contest.

And if the solid writing and outstanding photographs submitted for this year’s contest are any indication of things to come, newspapers will continue to bring high quality news to local readers throughout the Golden State.

While The Enterprise failed to win first prize for general excellence in the contest for the first time in four years, the Davis stalwart brought home top awards in seven categories. The awards for the contest were announced in Los Angeles this week.

First place awards went to:

* Photo editor Wayne Tilcock, for sports photo, for a shot taken last year during the UC Davis men’s soccer season.

Second place awards went to:

* Sportswriter and columnist Bruce Gallaudet, for sports story, for “1962 was a season of perfection for the Blue Devils” which ran on Feb. 9.

* Staff writer Lauren Keene, for best writing, for “‘It was really bad out there': Report details ill-fated police action,” which ran on April 12.

* Keene, for breaking news, for “Yolo carjacking suspect confirmed dead after shootout,” which ran on April 20.

* Photographer Fred Gladdis, for feature photo, for “Festival of lights,” which ran on Dec. 22, 2011.

* Enterprise staff, for local breaking news, for Nov. 20-23 coverage of the UC Davis police pepper-spraying of student protesters.

* Tilcock, for news photo, for photo of Occupy UC Davis students being pepper-sprayed by police.

The contest spanned story and photo entries covered between Nov. 1, 2011 through Nov. 6, 2012.

The CNPA contest is a newsroom competition held to recognize journalistic achievements published by daily and weekly newspapers in California. The Enterprise competes with other small daily newspapers that have circulations of 15,000 and below.

The Mountain Democrat, a McNaughton newspaper based in Placerville, won first place for news photo and second place for news photo and sports photo.
