The Clanton Advertiser won several awards in the Alabama Press Association’s 2011 Advertising Contest.

Forty-three newspapers submitted 844 entries in this year’s contest, which was judged by the Mississippi Press Association.

The Advertiser competes in Category B, against other community daily newspapers.

The Advertiser won the following awards:

•First place, Best Special Section, for Progress 2010, “Building Blocks of Chilton County.”

•Second place, Best Niche Publication, for Peach Living magazine.

•Second place, Best Signature Page, for Breast Cancer Awareness, “Sisters, Daughters, Mothers, Wives — Early Detection Saves Lives.”

•Third place, Best Single Ad over 1/2 page black and white, for the city of Clanton’s “Christmas in the City” ad by Zack Bates.

“Delivering award-winning marketing design and special products to our customers are important benchmarks for us so we were pleased with the contest results,” said Sales Manager Alan Brown. “Our customers can expect us to work hard in the coming year to deliver even more impressive results for their businesses as doing so is the best award we can hope for.”

The awards will be presented in June along with winners from the editorial contest (still to be announced) at the press association’s Summer Convention.
