RECORD and Signs of the Times magazines both earned recognition at the annual Australasian Religious Press Association (ARPA) Awards night in Melbourne. 

ARPA is a Christian communication network for Australian and New Zealand publications, their staff and contributors. 

RECORD received bronze awards in two categories: Best Profile Story and Best Theological article.  

The Best Profile award went to “Fighting Mac”, written by Avondale College lecturer Daniel Reynaud about an Anzac army chaplain. The citation said it was a “well-rounded” and “insightful” profile that made the judges want to learn more about the subject. A version of this piece was printed in Signs in April 2011. 

The Best Theological award went to “Laying down the Law”, written by Pastor Anthony MacPherson. The judges said it was a “lucid exploration of law and grace”. 

Signs received a silver award in the Best Humorous category for “How to understand the truth” by Scott Wegener. The piece was the inaugural winner of the Signs Publishing Writing Prize at the Manifest Creative Arts Festival in 2011. From there it was submitted to Signs and has now received recognition by ARPA. The judges admired the “conversational tone and style that, through its humour, allows us to appreciate our differences while having a chuckle”.
