It's all about us 

Creative Loafing captured six awards, including two first places, last Saturday in the Southeast's most competitive journalism contest.

The Green Eyeshades are given annually by the Society of Professional Journalists for articles and broadcast segments deemed by judges as the best in the previous calendar year in states from Virginia to Louisiana.

In the business category, CL staff writer Michael Wall won first place for "Customer Disservice," which detailed the sorry state of service by consumer companies and how it got that way. In the criticism category, music editor Roni Sarig took first place.

Sarig, who placed second in the contest last year, also picked up third place in feature writing for his story "Karaoke Nation," which detailed the world of competitive karaoke artists.

In other contests, CL staff photographer Jim Stawniak won second place for his work on a range of stories; staff writer Curt Holman received third place for his theater criticism; and Mara Shalhoup placed third in the investigative category for "Locked Out," which described the plight of residents forced out of public housing by the Atlanta Housing Authority.

Only one other publication, New Times Broward/Palm Beach received six awards. Creative Loafing competed in the weekly/monthly category.
