SPJ/LA Seeks Nominations for Annual Distinguished Journalist Awards

Did you read, see, listen to or click on a great news story this week? Maybe it’s time to recognize that reporter, broadcast anchor or editor for a career’s worth of great stories.

The Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is seeking nominations for the chapter’s 2016 Distinguished Journalists Awards and 2016 Freedom of Information Award.

The five journalism categories are:
  • print: 90,000+ circulation;
  • print: less than 90,000 circulation;
  • television broadcast;
  • radio broadcast; and
  • digital media.
Nominees may include reporters, news anchors, behind-the-scenes writers, editors or producers. Awards recognize a body of work rather than an individual story.

The Freedom of Information Award honors a non-journalist who has helped promote First Amendment issues. Previous winners have worked in the legal profession, academia, government and nonprofit organizations.

Nomination forms or emails with the relevant information must be submitted to Elizabeth Marcellino at eliz.marcellino@gmail.com no later than Friday, October 21, 2016.

Awards will be presented at the annual SPJ/LA awards banquet in January 2017.
