Sheridan Road magazine was a winner Friday night, May 4, at the 35th Annual Peter Lisagor Awards banquet in Chicago. Editorial Director Kerrie Kennedy, Art Director Melissa Miller and Digital Editor Jake Jarvi claimed a Peter Lisagor award for a photo shoot with the Joffrey Ballet that ran in Sheridan Road’s December 2011 issue, entitled “A Nutcracker Fantasy.”
Winning under the “Best Photography” category for a non-daily publication, Sheridan Road beat Time Out Chicago Kids and Crain’s Chicago Business in the competition.
“Besides the fact that we couldn’t ask for a better subject than the Joffrey Ballet, this is a testament to our entire team—from our talented and hardworking art and editorial departments, to a publisher who allows us the creative freedom to reach for the stars every day,” said Sheridan Road Editorial Director Kerrie Kennedy.
The Peter Lisagor Awards are the highest honor for Chicago area journalists. They are presented by the Chicago Headline Club, the largest chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists in the country.
