Reason Has 12 Podium Finishes at the Southern California Journalism Awards


The Los Angeles Press Club held its annual Southern California Journalism Awards gala this past weekend, and as in years past, Reason managed to pick up some hardware. We were finalists in 15 categories and ended up on the podium for 12 of them, including two first-place finishes.

Without further ado:

ReasonTV contributor Qinling Li’s “Meet the Trans Activists Fighting for Sex Worker Freedom” received first place honors in the category of Gender and Society. Judges’ comment: “Strong, sympathetic look at a stigmatizing issue, and great storytelling through the featured activists—well done!”
