The Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation has announced its 2019 News Organization of the Year Awards, recognizing PA news companies for overall excellence across all departments.

For multi-day publications, The Philadelphia Inquirer is recognized with first place honors while the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette receives second place. The Press And Journal, Middletown, receives first place for weeklies while the Pittsburgh Business Times earns second place honors.

More than 120 news organizations from across Pennsylvania competed for NOY Awards throughout the year by entering both the Keystone Press Awards and the PNA Foundation Advertising Contest. Points were awarded and accumulated through these contests as well as several special awards. While these contests were divided across categories and circulation divisions, NOY recognition is determined by the highest accumulated points across all categories and divisions. News organizations are judged not only on their journalism and writing, reporting, photography, video, digital products and design. But, also their sales strategies, innovation, community impact and their relevance, integrity and initiative in serving readers and audiences.

The NOY Awards will be presented Oct. 25, 2019, during the PNA Annual Convention at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center.
