Last week SPJ headquarters announced the winners of the 2010 Sigma Delta Chi award winners. For a complete list of winners, visit the SPJ site. Judges chose the winners from over 1,400 entries in categories covering print, radio, television and online. The awards recognize outstanding work published or broadcast in 2010.
Dating back to 1932, the awards originally honored six individuals for contributions to journalism. The current program began in 1939, when the Society granted the first Distinguished Service Awards. The honors later became the Sigma Delta Chi Awards.
The awards banquet will be Sept. 24 in New Orleans during the joint SPJ-RTDNA Excellence in Journalism conference.
