The Oregonian wins Wilbur Award
By Faith News Note,

What, you ask, is a Wilbur Award? It is an award for the best religion communications from a secular source; the Religion Communicators Council has given them out, in eight different categories, annually since 1949. Religious works are evaluated by a select panel of media professionals and council members for their content, creativity, and impact, and the winners in each category receive a Wilbur award. The awards are given to journalists, book authors, radio broadcasters, and motion picture producers who have demonstrated excellence “in communicating religious issues, values, and themes.”

The award is named after the late Marvin Wilbur, longtime head of the Religion Communicators Council and executive in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the same body which is underwriting the upcoming Wilbur Awards ceremony on April 14 in Philadelphia.

The Oregonian won for an April 24, 2011, article on Easter Sunday: “Faith and Portland: On Easter Sunday, adrift in an unchurched city,” by Susan Nielsen, associate editor.
