|Monthly Unique Visitors: 100,000 & under||Writing||First Place||Capital & Main||Los Angeles||On the Front Lines of 'Reopen America'||Wonderful contrarian piece. Vivid direct street reporting with great use of quotes and excellent photos. This detailed look at those protesting the partial shutdowns during the pandemic goes a long way to airing these people's points of view and, as importantly, distinguishes between their rationales and those of virulent Trump supporters.||Steve Appleford||I thought only three articles were worthy of awards.|
|Monthly Unique Visitors: 100,000 & under||Writing||Second Place||California Health Report||Alternatives to Calling the Police for Domestic Violence Survivors||Very compelling anecdotal lede and a wide-ranging look at the issues. Nicely took care of arguments for police intervention both through analysis and individual case stories.||Claudia Boyd-Barrett||I thought only three articles were worthy of awards.|
|Monthly Unique Visitors: 100,000 & under||Writing||Third Place||California Health Report||How Colleges Are Supporting Students Leaving Abusive Relationships||Good examination of the problem and excellent use of your protagonist, weaving her throughout the story.||Claudia Boyd-Barrett||I thought only three articles were worthy of awards.|
