The Best of Newspapers winner is Michael Knight, whose article "Mark Martin Says He's Ready to Stop Racing" in The Arizona Republic, earned the top spot in the News category.

Avery, a professional photographer and freelance writer from Palatine, owns Prestige MotorCar Photography. He has written Classic Recollections for the Daily Herald's Sunday Auto section since 2010.

The three Daily Herald columns submitted for judging profiled the Libertyville-based Midwest Picture Car Group, which supplies vintage autos for movies and TV shows filmed in the Chicago area; several owners attending the 25th annual Chevy Nomad Association convention in Itasca last July; and classic camper enthusiasts who organize one of the largest vintage trailer rallies in the Midwest.

This is the 23rd year for the society's media competition.

Avery's columns run each week on dailyherald.com. You can find a collection of his colummns at http://www.dailyherald.com/topics/Avery-Matt/.
