The judges appreciated the “strong use of color on front covers” and the full bleed and full page pictures. For the writing, they found the first person pieces the most engaging. “Unique perspectives and a strong focus on the magazine’s purpose makes for an original and interesting magazine. Good work,” judges wrote.
In the category “Reporting and Writing: interview (all media)", Living City received an Award of Excellence for the article “Peace through forgiveness” in the December issue, written by Jade Giacobbe, about Rachel Muha, whose son was murdered in 1999 at age 18.
Judges wrote, “This would be a heartbreaking story were it not for the emphasis on forgiveness, and the mother provides powerful testimony ... A well-crafted story. Good can spring from evil with the proper approach to forgiveness.”
