Toledo Free Press  Welcome to our Instagram page. Follow us for the latest news photos in and around Toledo.

The results are in and Toledo Free Press was recently named "Best Weekly Newspaper in Ohio" for its work in 2014!

The Ohio’s Best Journalism Competition, presented collaboratively this fall by the Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), named TFP Best Weekly in the small circulation print category.

Toledo Free Press also won four other awards. Sarah Ottney won first place for best newsmaker profile, and second place for best children’s issues reporting. Jeff McGinnis won first for best arts reporting, and Danielle Stanton and Sarah Ottney won first for best environment reporting.

TFP adds these awards to its previous five "Best Weekly Newspaper in Ohio" designations from SPJ.

Hey! Check out this new mural near the Toledo Farmers Market, featuring our #419Day issue of #ToledoFreePress! Some of the Instagrammers whose photos appeared on our cover will recognize (pieces of) their work on the wall! The mural was designed by artist Jeff Weiser and put up by #ArtCornerToledo. We are honored to be depicted on a wall in the Warehouse District, which we loved being part of and still love. @igers_toledo @owe_grammers

Some Cub Scouts visited our office today. We put them on the front page, asked them what the headline should be and then printed them a copy. #AwesomeKids

It's been an emotional week. Thanks to everyone for all the kind posts and comments. Today, Sue Terrill of the Libbey High School alumni association stopped by with a sign: "Toledo Free Press, Thank You! From the South Side and all community supporters." Thank you so much, Sue! #GoodbyeTFP

The @uoftoledo Sailing Club is leaving today for La Rochelle, France, to compete in the EDHEC Sailing Cup, a six-day intercollegiate race held April 24-May 2. The club will compete against 150 college teams from across the globe with a goal of making it to the finals, which means placing in the top 20. UT's team was invited to compete after besting some of the best sailing clubs in the country at the Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta in New York last fall. #sailing #EDHEC #CCE2015 #toledoohio #UTSailingClub #lakeerie

Happy Earth Day! ICYMI: Did you know a Toledoan, the late environmental activist Selma Rubin, is credited with helping to inspire the creation of Earth Day?
