The Word is IT at The Genesis Print Awards Ceremony

The Humane Society of the United States

In our multi-media information age, the annual Genesis Awards continues to recognize the power and influence of the printed word by honoring newspapers and publications responsible for exploring animal protection issues with the type of extensive and detailed reporting that remains the special domain of the print media.

For this reason, The 25th Anniversary Genesis Awards paid tribute to the journalists whose works elevated animal issues in 2010 at a special Outstanding Written Word awards ceremony on Friday, March 18 at CAA’s spectacular Los Angeles headquarters. From a distinguished group of nominees, which included Time, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Los Angeles Times, Conde Naste Traveler, the UK’s Sunday Times, and Daily Express, the winners were announced in the following categories:
