Again a TPA state awards leader, farragutpress adv-production earns 24

Once again placing farragutpress among the statewide leaders in Tennessee Press Association awards, its Advertising and Production departments collected 24 — in 17 categories — for its work from publications in 2020, as announced last week.

Competing in Non-Dailies D-2 category, this farragutpress staff of five earned 11 first-place honors.

“I am very proud of our farragutpress Advertising and Production teams for all of their hard work throughout the year. We work together to ensure that all of our customers receive award-winning advertising that helps to expand their business,” said Cara Ford, advertising manager, who is assisted by sales reps Charlene Waggoner and Laura Sayers. “We are happy and honored to be called an award-winning team; farragutpress is your community, your voice, your award-winning newspaper.”

Production manager Tony Christen and graphic designer Cindy Wilfert have been major contributors in farragutpress becoming a top TPA winner — among all newspapers statewide — in advertising-production awards the past four years.

“I am really proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time,” Christen said. “It is quite the honor for TPA to recognize and award us for our work four years in a row.”
