Tribune-Review staff members won awards in four categories in an international journalism contest sponsored by the Association for Women in Communications.

The Trib won Clarion Awards in three categories for a special section published in September titled “Breast Cancer: A Journey for Recovery,” which examined the gaping racial divides that exist in diagnoses and deaths of breast cancer.

Trib reporter Adam Smeltz and photographer Jasmine Goldband produced the package.

Trib political columnist Salena Zito won a Clarion Award in the newspaper opinion/editorial category for her portfolio of work.

After learning that breast cancer is more likely to appear in black women younger than 40, Smeltz and Goldband explored the trend and examined the research and treatment options to address it. The stories painted intimate portraits of survivors and those battling the disease.

They won prizes in the following categories:

• Newspapers: Newspaper Special Section or Special Edition

• Online Media: Online Journalism — Special News Section

• Photography and Graphics: Press Photography — Photo Series/Essay (Feature)

Started in 1972, the Clarions honor excellence in more than 100 categories including print and broadcast journalism, television and radio production, film, advertising, public relations, marketing, graphic design, multimedia design and photography.
