All finalists to the 57th Annual SoCal Journalism Awards are now posted

Saturday, May 30, 2015 11:02 AM

This is proving to be the most competitive year in the Los Angeles Press Club’s recent memory with close to a thousand entries. So if there was ever a year when it is an honor just to be nominated, this is it. Some of the categories were so loaded we split them up..

Last year the Awards Gala sold out two weeks before the event, so make sure to get your tickets in time. Ordering your tickets early also saves money. We will accept the early bird rate until June 7. And remember—members pay less than non-members, so it makes sense to join the club.

Tickets can be bought directly from the club’s website or by calling 323-669-8081.

You can also celebrate and support the LAPC by taking out an ad in the program book or by donating to our silent auction.

Here are this year’s honorees:
