HousingWire magazine placed second in a nationwide competition to find the best industry trade publication.

The National Association of Real Estate Editors announced the winners of its 61st annual real estate journalism competition Friday evening at a ceremony during the organization's spring conference in San Antonio.

While HousingWire placed second in the Best Residential Trade Magazine category, several individual reporters were honored as well.

Kerry Curry, executive editor of HousingWire, placed first in the Residential Real Estate Writing category for her work on a piece called "In the rough," published in the October edition of REO Insider magazine.

Jon Prior, news reporter for HousingWire, received second place in the same category for his "No minor obstacle" piece published in the same edition of REO Insider. This was the final issue of that publication before it was acquired by HousingWire.

Congratulations to Kerry and Jon, and thank you HousingWire readers for supporting the best mortgage industry publication in the country.
