The Washington Post on Tuesday honored the recipients of the 2018 Eugene Meyer Awards and the 2018 Ben Bradlee Award for Extraordinary Journalism. The Eugene Meyer Awards recognize employees with at least 10 years of service who exemplify the seven principles for which Eugene Meyer stood and have guided The Post for the past 85 years. The Ben Bradlee Award for Extraordinary Journalism was established in the aftermath of the revered Post editor’s death in 2014 in recognition of the values that embodied his life and career, in particular to honor the relentless pursuit of truth by an individual or team of Post journalists.

The full list of this year’s winners include:

· DeMarco Bell, Production

· Alba Cortes, Finance

· Jackson Diehl, Editorial Page

· Melissa McCullough, Newsroom Operations

· Joshua Partlow and Michael Robinson Chavez, News and Photo
