Booyakasha! Six first place, two second place awards -- the latter only in categories where we were competing against ourselves. We beat the San Francisco Business Times in business reporting. Our production team got first place for layout and design, and that was in a category without circulation classes. In other words, we are officially the BEST-DESIGNED WEEKLY TABLOID PAPER IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
Writing, features, news, investigative reporting -- the Journal has it all, baby! It's like we've been trying to tell you! Click through to the CNPA .pdf for the full rundown.
Oh, and congrats to the Times-Standard for taking home two second-place awards (*cough*). Eureka Reporter -- better luck next year.
