Print Editor-in-Chief Ani Tutunjyan and Layout Editor Antony Nepeyvoda show off their awarding-winning newspaper.

The Mirror has been named the top high school newspaper by the Los Angeles Press Club (LAPC) during its annual SoCal Journalism Awards on Saturday, receiving first place in the Best High School Newspaper and Best Feature Photo categories.

The layout for the four awarding-winning issues is “tight, colorful and fun, and the graphics and photography are well-placed” according to judges.

2021 alumni Ivan Delgado’s photo capturing a Latino couple posing in front of a historic mural won Best Feature Photo for his photo that judges called a “powerful black-and-white portrait of a Latinx couple bursting with cultural color.”

Print Editor-in-Chief Ani Tutunjyan was also a finalist for Best Personality Profile alongside college journalists.

“I’m so happy all our hard work last year paid off,” Tutunjyan said. “It was challenging producing newspapers during distance learning but it was definitely worth it.”

“When I found out we won I was ecstatic,” Layout Editor Antony Nepeyvoda said. “It’s cool to see my work receive recognition.”

The Mirror was also featured on LAUSD’s Instagram for its recognition.
