Daily News writers Becky Batcha and Molly Eichel and former staff writer Natalie Pompilio have won the national Clarion Award from Women In Communications for best newspaper feature story (circulation under 500,000) for "A Day in the Life of Children's Hospital."
The Wall Street Journal won the category for newspapers with a circulation above 500,000.
Other news outlets to win Clarions this year include BBC News, HBO, Sports Illustrated, Glamour and Marie Claire.
The story ran last summer, with photographs by Sarah J. Glover, Alejandro A. Alvarez and Seven M. Falk, in a special section jointly produced by the Daily News and the Inquirer. The prize-winning package, along with a video by Glover, are online at philly.com/chop.
