Complete APSE 2015 Contest Results March 2, 2016

Six media groups won “Grand Slam” honors in the annual Associated Press Sports Editors’ writing and sections contest that was held this week.

The Boston Globe, The New York Times and The Washington Post, competing in the over-175,000 circulation division, earned top-10 recognition for their daily, Sunday and special sections to go along with top 10 honors in the digital contest for its website and mobile platforms.

Omaha World-Herald and The Seattle Times in the 75,000-175,000 circulation category

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle won top-10 section awards in the under 15,000 circulation division as well as top-10 digital honors.

The APSE awards, voted on by sports editors and journalists from across the nation during four days of judging, honor work published in 2015.

Twenty newspapers won Triple Crowns, signifying top 10 honors in three of four section/website categories. Those include:

— 75,0001-175,000: San Antonio Express-News, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Buffalo News, The Charlotte Observer.

— Under 15,000: Ames Tribune, Marietta Daily Journal, Opelika-Auburn News.

The New York Times led all news organizations with 12 individual awards.

Ryan Holmgren of the Casper Star-Tribune led the individual awards, capturing six honors, including multimedia, explanatory, game story, beat writing, feature writing and project reporting in the under-30,000 circulation category.

Jim Baumbach of Newsday won four writing honors, as did Brad Elliott Schlossman of the Grand Forks (N.D.) Herald.

The ranking of the top 10 in the writing, multimedia and video categories will be announced later this month. Winners will receive their awards in June at the APSE summer conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.
