GA Recognized by the NJ-SPJ


Maybe a month or so back, GA entered this web site for consideration by the New Jersey Chapter, Society of Professional Journalists in a contest for work done in 2013.  A little about this organization:
The New Jersey chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists exists as a voluntary affiliate of the national organization‚ the Society of Professional Journalists‚ shares its goals‚ and adheres to its policies. Specifically‚ the chapter will promote and support the ethical practice of journalism. We aim to uphold the highest standards of the profession for fairness‚ accuracy and thoroughness. The chapter also was established to address the interests of those within the profession‚ and those seeking to enter it.

Then I sent samples of my work- blog posts from 2013- and a link to Grafix Avenger, then forgot about it.

So, I was delighted to find this in my Inbox today:
You have been approved to make entries in the 2014 NJ-SPJ Journalism Awards for work done in 2013...
Well, it is an honor to  be recognized by a prestigious organization like the New Jersey Chapter, Society of Professional Journalists who've reviewed my blog, selected posts, and validated the kind of work I do by letting Grafix Avenger 'through the gate'

Any suggestions on entries would be appreciated.

  6. Keep up the good work. You are the new face of journalism when print media abdicates their responsibility.
