This year we were honored to take home 23 awards in the annual Rhode Island Press Association editorial contest. The winning pieces came from each of our five magazines, and covered categories in writing, photography and design. Here are the award-winning stories that we published in 2016. It's great to get the recognition, but at the end of the day the real reward is living in a state with so many great stories to tell.
