The Religion Newswriters Association, the professional organization for journalists who cover religion as a beat, has announced its slate of finalists for the 2014 RNA Annual Contests for Religion Reporting Excellence. This is awarded for work published or broadcast in 2013.

Three NCR writers are among the finalists: Joshua J. McElwee, Brian Roewe and Megan Fincher, a Bertelsen intern. Good luck, gang!
