2008 Arizona Press Club awards competition for the Best Journalism in Arizona
Greetings from the Arizona Press Club.
Here is what you’ve all been waiting for: the list of winners in the Arizona Press Club's 2008 Awards Competition for the Best Journalism in Arizona. No, we will not tell you in which category you placed, or in what order you placed — for now. We save that news for our banquet, to be held this year on Saturday, May 16 at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in downtown Phoenix.
Deadline to register is May 7, by mail, or May 12, online with credit card. To buy tickets or for more info click here.
Important note: This list does not include the winners for B7. Personality profile reporting as we have not yet received the results in these two categories. We will notify the winners immediately upon hearing from our judges.
Second important note: If your name is spelled incorrectly on this list, please contact contest chairman Le Templar at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise it will be wrong on your certificate.
Congratulations to all of this year’s winners! We look forward to seeing you all on May 16!
