Style Magazine is proud to announce winners of the 2022-2023 Excellence in Journalism Awards from the Florida Press Club Excellence in Journalism Competition. The annual gala was held on January 27 in Clearwater, where awards were given out for outstanding journalism across the state, honoring excellence in photography, writing, and design.

Nicole Hamel, Roxanne Brown and Gina Horan accepted awards on behalf James Combs.

Among this year’s winners are Style Magazine’s Creative Director Michael Gaulin, Graphic Designer Shawnee Coppola, Digital Editor Cindy Peterson, Managing Editor Roxanne Brown, Contributing Writer Gary Corsair, and the late James Combs, who was a longtime staff writer. Each recipient has demonstrated exceptional talent, dedication, and professionalism in their respective fields of journalism.
