The Globe's Jana G. Pruden and Shannon Busta won Gold in two categories – Best Feature Article: Short and Best Social Storytelling – for a story on Alberta's Crichton Farm.

"The calibre of execution has become a consistent distinguishing feature in our daily operation and many of the highlights recognized by the judges are simply world class; brave, artistic, experimental. Just what our audience deserves," Globe and Mail editor-in-chief David Walmsley said.
