Edible San Diego wins eight awards at the San Diego Press Club’s 47th Annual Excellence in Journalism Awards
The San Diego Press Club announced winners of the 47th Annual Excellence in Journalism Awards on 10/27, and we are thrilled to share that Edible San Diego was recognized for eight submissions this year.
Publisher and editor in chief Katie Stokes says she’s “very proud of our efforts considering the size and resources of the many other entries.”
Congratulations to all the Excellence in Journalism award winners, and to our readers, viewers, and advertisers who have supported local media this year. As the executive editor/stylist, designer, bookkeeper, meeting scheduler, caption and copywriter, producer, creative director, content creator and social media moderator, and more, it’s an honor to be in your ranks. We at Edible San Diego and our freelance contributors have a profound respect for all that goes into making and creating media content, and the value it brings to our communities.
Now is the time to support local media, especially those outlets that promote stories of personal interest and agenda. It doesn’t take much more than a quick look at the regularly maintained updates on newsroom closures and stories about Covid-19’s impact on freelance journalists and writers in the current social climate to feel the vulnerability of what we do and who we are.
So, thank you to the many local writers, photographers, illustrators, and creatives that contribute to the voice and fabric of our news and culture—especially those that contribute to Edible San Diego.
Many thanks also to those that collaborated with us to be featured in stories and content. If you’ve ever been mentioned by us and to those we hope to feature in the future, know that it’s because your time, energy, and dedication to your craft truly inspires us. We are merely the storytellers and we couldn’t do this without you.
