Who is a Finalist for the Southern California Journalism Awards? I am a finalist in two categories for the Southern California Journalism Awards! I am so honored and excited. Thank you to everyone who has supported me in my writing career.
What are the Southern California Journalism Awards?

The 59th Southern California Journalism Awards honor the best in broadcast, print and online media. There were 1200 entries for the 2017 awards.

From LA Press Club: "The Southern California Journalism Awards were born during the Cold War, when Los Angeles journalism was dominated by the city’s many newspapers. Television was in its infancy. Developments like all-news radio were still years away. Women journalists were rare in mainstream media. Minorities, even rarer.

Today we see greater diversity in the newsroom and in the ways we provide information. The Press Club has been striving to embrace Internet journalists and bloggers–clearly the wave of the future.

The Southern California Journalism Awards, now celebrating 59 years of recognizing high-caliber journalism, continues to call attention to the Los Angeles area’s fine journalists while promoting excellence in new and emerging media."
