Journalism, photography and design students win

Every year for the past 60, the Journalism Association of Community Colleges presents awards to the best community college journalism in the state at its annual convention, which took place April 11 in Sacramento.

This year several Express staff members won awards in writing, photography, design and multimedia, for a total of six awards. The most impressive win was for first place in the state in video journalism.

Former multimedia editor Tamara Knox, who works in the Cultural Awareness Center on campus, won her award for a multimedia piece she created for Mainline magazine in fall 2014 about a student who does cycle surfing.

Meg Masterson, current editor in chief, won second place for an editorial she wrote about naming the new campus building after Belle Cooledge, an early dean of City College and former Sacramento mayor.

“It was a surprise and a delight to receive an award, especially for an editorial,” said Masterson. “I find writing editorials difficult, so to be recognized for excellence in that field really made me feel good about all of the hard work I put in.”


Below are a list of all awards:
