DETROIT -- The Westin Book Cadillac Hotel was host Thursday night to a collection of reporters and photographers whose outstanding effort in their coverage over the past year brought notable acclaim and reward. And with such stories ranging from the Arab revolutions to Gabrielle Giffords, the backdrop for such awards was monumental, both in tragedy and hope.

Such achievement and reward was highlighted amid 15 presented awards and their recipients during the Scripps Howard 59th Annual National Journalism Awards ceremony. In addition to such awards, each winner received cash prizes that totaled up to $175,000.

Upon the completion of provided dinner, the award handouts began with the Walker Stone Award for Editorial Writing going to the Lexington Herald-Leader’s Jamie Lucke. Her editorials were noted for the issues surrounding Kentucky’s coal industry and its progress. “It proves you’re not just dedicated to a moment’s news, but to the future.”

Winning for Commentary was the Boston Globe’s Brian McGrory, while the Virginian-Pilot’s Corinne Reilly won the Ernie Pyle Award for Human Interest Writing with the personal exploration of war casualty’s support in recovery in “A Chance in Hell.”

The Arizona Republic’s coverage of the shootings of nearly 20 people including Congresswoman Giffords won for Breaking News, while the Jack R. Howard Award for TV/Cable In-Depth Reporting to several reporters of Al-Jazeera English.

Focusing on the Bahrain protests, the team of May Ying Welsh, Jon Blair, Tuki Laumea and Hassan Mahfood dedicated themselves to reporting on the threats, atrocities, and censoring issues that bore down on they and the nation’s people and receive exposure in the documentary “Bahrain: Shouting in the Dark.”

Accepting the award was Welsh, who commented on her impression of the win: “We’re surprised to receive this award because they usually give to American (establishments).”

In closing, Welsh sought to provide a suggestive resolution to the search for free expression and numerous other liberties: “If their media doesn’t black out what’s happening, they’ll be able to find their way.”
