Integration of graphics andstories, conceptual solutions and clean design.C23rdContra CostaCollegeThe AdvocateNoldon prepares to leadBest News Series A31stUC BerkeleyMegan Messerly, GauthamThomas, Alyssa Neumann, Alex Beryhill and staff The purpose of a news series is to go beyond daily, event-drivencoverage and make readers think about an issue in a fresh way. TheDaily Californian series did just that with affirmative action. Pegged toa U.S. Supreme Court case about the role of race in the admissionsprocess, the series went deeper than just reciting the arguments onboth sides. I particularly enjoyed the story about how officials fearedthat California's ban on affirmative action at public institutions wouldeventually lead to a less diverse faculty, a concern I hadn't read aboutbefore. All four parts were also easy to read, which is no small featwhen you're dealing with a complicated topic. A32ndStanford UniversityKristian Davis Bailey and staff  A33rdUCLAAndra Lim, Kylie Reynoldsand staff B31stUC RiversideEric Gamboa, Sandy Van andCarrie Meng and staff The articles covered the defacement of an Israeli flag on campus andthe resulting fallout as the school community grappled with itsresponse.

Best feature lede of the bunch, while substantive humaninterest angle makes the article compelling even to readers who mayinitially be turned off thinking this is a strictly sports piece. Like all goodsports writing, the author relates this article to larger themes, in thiscase, of perseverance, accomplishment and honor of a loved onewho has passed. A62ndUC BerkeleyJack WangLights, please A63rdCSU NorthridgeMelody CherchianFor for the foreclosed
B61stUC IrvineMichael ChinDown & Out in Aldrich ParkMichael Chins Down & Out in Aldrich Parkis a delightful account oan audacious, slightly wacky, possibly illegal stunt: spending a weeksleeping outdoors on campus. The idea alone was inspired, but whatmakes this story a winner is Chin’s deft narrative, which combineshumor, vivid writing and an element of suspense as he describes hisweek ensconced in a tent deep in UC Irvine’s Aldrich Park, braving jitters, drunken passers-by and an automatic sprinkler system. Thereare some lovely turns of phrase: “I was then alone, kept awake byarbitrary nighttime noise, ghosts of wind rattling the leaves of myparanoia.” And Chin brings an unusual sensibility that can bring thepop of surprise to the story. When a hummingbird flits in front of him,he doesn’t find it charming or beautiful; it is, rather, “sickeninglydreamlike.” Given the potential dangers, this is probably not an ideathat should be replicated. But for his imagination, fine writing andsheer chutzpah, Chin deserves this recognition.B62ndMills CollegeKhadija ElgarguriDoc Martens a symbol outilitarian fashion styleB63rdCSU BakersfieldKat HaasThis place is for the dogsC61stSan Jose CityCollegeSteve HillThe tenuous life of adjunctfacultyOf all the entrants, Steve Hill’s submission was the best balanced asfar as being well written, well reported and dealing with a substantivetopic. His topic was the challenges of being a part-time teacher incommunity colleges. His lede was crisp, readable and to the point. Heknew hot to use good quotes, avoiding the practice of simply quotingdata. Hill ended with a good quote which wrapped up why despite thefinancial and other constraints of being, essentially, a 2nd-rungteacher, these people persevered. The story felt complete, both in itsreporting, writing and arc.C62ndCollege of SanMateoErasmo MartinezCSM graduate starts filmproduction companyC63rdSan Jose CityCollegeMatt NarleskyHistory of the HuntBest Editorial A71stCal StateNorthridgeProp. 30 is a catch-22 that wedon't want but need A no-nonsense take on a statewide issue that combined good writingwith research and reporting.
