We're swelling with pride after getting props for writing, design and photography

Hey! Someone stop that pile of awards before it crushes some awesome people!

In all sincerety, this is what the Dispatch magazines' haul from the Press Club of Cleveland looked like Friday night at the organization's annual awards ceremony. That's former Alive editor Shelley Mann (now the editor at Crave) peering over the stack. And that's intrepid designer Michaela Schuett on the right, clearly excited about something. Our friends took home a ton of loot in the contest, which includes newspapers and magazines from across Ohio.
