California Journalism Awards shipped

Plaques and certificates were mailed and shipped earlier this month to winners of the 2018 California Journalism Awards.

CJA plaques are awarded to newspapers who placed first and second in the Print, Digital and Campus competitions, and to first-place winners in the new Open Contest – the “best of the best” among publications, regardless of size, from eight categories in the Print and Digital contests.

This year, personalized certificates were sent to all top-five finishers.

If your publication has not received its plaques and/or certificates, please contact contest administrator Simon Birch. Also contact Birch if there are errors or omissions on your plaques or certificates.

As in past years, CNPA is offering personalized plaques that can be ordered directly from the awards company. You can download a PDF of the order form here. Please note that the completed order form, along with credit card payment, must be emailed or faxed directly to the awards company. Contact information is included on the form.
