Each spring, the Georgetown Journalism Program celebrates a successful year of on-campus student journalism in a ceremony held at Alumni House. The ceremony, attended by current student journalists, and alumni, also included a speech from guest speaker Mary Gordon (CAS ‘83). The event concluded with the presentation of Edward B. Bunn Awards of Journalistic Excellence, which are given to honor exemplary student journalism throughout the academic year. The awards, which are given in six categories: features, news, arts and culture, opinion, photography, and multimedia, are decided by a panel of judges, including Georgetown alumni journalists and current journalism professors.

This year, the Voice won 14 of the 18 of the available awards, as well as two honorable mentions. Congratulations to all our winners from the Voice. Here is a list of all their work:
