The Times won 31 awards — 28 awards of excellence and three silver awards — in the annual Society for News Design competition. It was the third year the paper ranked in the top 10 in number of awards, said Patty Cox, Times managing editor/presentation.

SND, which co-sponsors the judging with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse, issued more than 1,100 awards for visual journalism published in 2009. The winners came from more than 10,000 entries submitted by 374 newspapers from around the world.

The Times' three silver awards went to: photographer John Pendygraft for a portfolio of work; Terry Chapman, Don Morris, Chris Kozlowski and Graham Brink for a presentation on the fall of the stock market; and Nikki Life, Paul Alexander, Holly Braford, Amy Hollyfield, Boyzell Hosey and Cox for the coverage of Barack Obama's inauguration.

Other Times staffers who worked on the award-winning entries: Richard Bockman, Becky Bowers, Andrew Braford, John Corbitt, Sherri Day, Jennifer DeCamp, Kathleen Flynn, Edmund Fountain, Janet Keeler, Melissa Lyttle, Steve Madden, Bruce Moyer, Suzette Moyer, Skip O'Rourke and Patty Yablonski,

Award-winning work will be featured in SND's 31st edition book, The Best of Newspaper Design, this fall. The Times tied with the Plain Dealer of Cleveland, and finished in the awards count behind the Los Angeles Times, Canada's National Post, the National of the United Arab Emirates, the New York Times and Gulf News of Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
