Kentucky Living was honored with four awards from the National Electric Cooperative Statewide Editors Association at its annual institute in Whitefish, Montana, on Tuesday night.
Senior Graphic Designer Penny Kephart received the gold award for Best Illustration for her treatment of the Top 10 Veggies cover in March 2017.
Kentucky Living also won a gold award for Best Magazine Design, thanks to the work of Kephart and Graphic Designer Katy Hurt.
Gold awards are given to the top entries in each category.
Writer Graham Shelby received an Award of Merit for Best News Feature for the November 2016 health feature, Man Up, Kentucky, and back-page columnist Byron Crawford received an Award of Merit for Best Column for December 2016’s Not forgotten at Christmas.
Awards of Merit are given when judges deem other entries, aside from the top entry, are worthy of recognition.
Editor Anita Travis Richter and Managing Editor Shannon Brock attended the SEA Institute and accepted the awards on the team’s behalf.
