And the Region 10 contest is live

Whew – it’s been a bit of a steep learning curve here, but we should be good to go. To enter the 2013 SPJ Region 10 Excellence in Journalism contest please visit http://www.reg10spjcontest.com

The categories and entry prices are the same as last year. The deadline is February 19 – please meet the deadline. Please.
Some of you have a three-day weekend coming up and the stuff you are submitting was already published – please don’t procrastinate.

We have a new contest coordinator. Her name is Lorna Walsh and she is a communications professional here in Spokane. She was one of a handful of people who were interested in the job, and we are looking forward to working with her.
For now, your best contact for contest questions is Regional Director Pia Hallenberg – reach her at piah@spokesman.com

We received more than 2,000 entries last year and are excited to see what you will be sending us this year. Remember, only entries published and broadcast in 2013 are eligible.

Unfettered access to those in power, a push for government transparency and a vigorous defense of the First Amendment are perhaps more important now than ever before. Join us as we fight for the public’s right to know as an SPJ Supporter. Or, if you’re a journalist, we welcome you to stand with us as a Professional, Student or Retired Member.

    Good blog, Dana. Freelancing can bring up the weirdest possibilities for conflict. I got an assignment from a farming publication to cover a new type of open-parlor milking operation. It was in Alamance County, NC, so I knew the possibility and called my cousin who has the best grasp of our huge extended family. Sure enough, the farmer is a distant cousin. . .of course I disclosed the fact. My editor got a chuckle out of the ridiculous number of people down there I’m related to. . .
