LA Press Club recognizes Intersections for South LA reporting


Annenberg students, along with Journalism School Director Willow Bay and Annenberg Dean Ernie Wilson, crowd the Biltmore Hotel lobby on their way into the LA Press Club Awards ceremony.


Intersections was honored by the Los Angeles Press Club in nine award categories Sunday night for reporting on topics ranging from Zumba fitness to LAUSD mismanagement, sidewalk tacos to criminal justice. During 2014, the year recognized by the 57th Annual Southern California Journalism Awards, Intersections expanded its ranks and moved into the Annenberg School’s new Media Center while continuing to explore untold stories of South L.A. and experiment with multimedia storytelling. We also became Press Club nominees for the first time — which now offers us the chance to highlight excellent reporting that illuminates many sides of South L.A. life.

Read on for links to some of the finest work from Intersections of 2014, with gratitude to our staff and advisors. The full list of winners is available on the L.A. Press Club website.
