The Daily Mississippian is a finalist for Daily Newspaper of the Year in the national Pinnacle Award competition, one of the highest honors in college journalism.
The DM is one of four finalists in the four-year university category. The other three are student newspapers at Iowa State, Texas A&M, and the University of Texas-Austin. The category is for newspapers published at least three days per week.
It recognizes excellence in coverage and content; design, graphics and illustrations; photography; service to the campus community; and reporting, writing and editing.
Each entry consisted of one edition published in fall 2018, one edition published spring 2019, and one other edition from anytime during the 2018-2019 academic year.
Winners will be announced at a College Media Association conference in November.
