1) Journalist of the Year: For extraordinary journalistic contributions in the past year.
2) Career Achievement: For extraordinary achievements exemplifying the highest standards of the profession.

5) Distinguished Service: For advancement or advocacy of journalism by a journalist or non-journalist.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Qualifying Timeframe: Entries must have been published/broadcast between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, by a news outlet or individuals based in Northern California — which for the purposes of this contest includes everything from Santa Barbara County to the Oregon border. Each entrant may submit only one entry per category.

Deadline: Entries must be time-stamped by 11:59 p.m. PT on Friday, Sept. 20, 2019.

Multiple entries: Stories or projects entered in the Public Service, Best Scoop or Outstanding Emerging Journalist categories may also be entered in one other category. Entries for other categories may not be entered in multiple categories.

Cover letters: Letters of nomination or recommendation are permitted in any category, but they are not required, except for Board Award nominations.

Divisions: Some categories are divided into Small and Large divisions to reflect the reality that larger organizations have more resources than smaller ones. “Large” organizations are defined as organizations where one or more of the following apply: print circulation exceeds 100,000 and/or average monthly unique website visitors exceed 500,000. If neither of those apply to your organization, select “Small.” If your organization is a news service or an organization that produces content for syndication, choose your division based on the estimated reach the story received in syndication.

You must supply information regarding circulation or audience reach where it is requested. If a category receives a large number of entries, judges may create two divisions and will need circulation or audience information to do so.

Fee:
For SPJ members**: $30 per entry.
For non-SPJ members: $40 per entry.
For students: $10 per entry.

** To be eligible for the $30 SPJ member entry fee, you must be a member of both the SPJ national organization (current membership fee $75) AND the SPJ Northern California chapter ($20) as of the time-stamp of entry. Membership is good for 12 months, based on the date you joined.

Hi All,

We cover interviewing and miking techniques, sound gathering, original, imaginative story structure, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, recording equipment, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story, how to find your voice and how to listen (which is harder than it looks). We also talk podcasting. Serious talk about getting your podcast going and giving it a real sound.

The workshop is customized to fit the projects you are working on. People who have attended in the past have come from radio, film, multimedia, detective agencies, podcasting, newspapers, journalism, photography, oral history, historical societies, farms, music, ophthalmology, writing, libraries, archives, beer brewing, web design, restaurants, health care organizations, film, cheese-making and beyond. The groups are always lively and good contacts are made.

Sign up for one session on the 16th, whatever time works best for you.

Morning Workshop: 10:00 – 1:00pm
Afternoon Workshop: 2:00 – 5:00 pm

Cost: $160.00
