  • Place Name: First Place
    Contestant Name: Los Angeles Times
    Entry Title: Golden State Injustice
    Entry Credit: Matt Hamilton, Harriet Ryan
    Judge Comment: Well-sourced, thoroughly researched, written in clear, understandable language free of legalese. Entries show the wide scope the reporters investigated and evidence of the reporters’ persistence in chasing down every lead. The online presentation was excellent, particularly in use of photos, graphic elements featuring large pullout text with historic photos, and the well-produced video interview with the reporters. Terrific work.
