From Sac State: Center for California Studies Spring Newsletter.
The Center for California Studies and the Sacramento Press Club will again hold the annual California Journalism Awards competition. The 14th Annual Journalism Awards will recognize stories published or broadcast in 2007 that cover California state government and politics.
The California Journalism Awards are unique in that the entries are judged by current and former journalists. Past recipients have expressed that these awards mean more to them because their work was recognized by their peers.
The California Journalism Awards are given in four categories:
Print Journalism – John Jacobs Awards for excellence in daily coverage, and excellence in special feature or enterprise reporting;
Katherine M. Macdonald Award for excellence in print, radio, or television journalism by a college or university student.
Cash prizes are awarded, with winners in the print, radio and television categories receiving $500 and the recipient of the student journal¬ism award receiving $300. There is no entry fee and all interested journalists in California are encouraged to apply.
The call for entries for the 14th Annual California Journalism Awards will be circulated in early summer 2008, with a postmark deadline to submit an entry by July 23, 2008. Award recipients will be announced in September 2008, and the winners will be invited to attend the 14th Annual Journalism Awards luncheon in Sacramento that same month.
