Florida Politics’ Takeaways from Tallahassee
December 2, 2017
The First Amendment Foundation (FAF) is accepting nominations for its “Lucy Morgan Award for Open Government Reporting,” named after the legendary Pulitzer Prize winner and retired St. Petersburg Times (now Tampa Bay Times) Tallahassee bureau reporter.
The award is intended to honor a Florida journalist who “smartly uses public records to report stories exposing corruption, revealing government conflicts of interest or otherwise serving the public interest.”
The contest is open to all Florida journalists and there is no fee for entries. Journalists can nominate their own work. Nominations can also be made by supervisors or editors.
Entries must be submitted to the First Amendment Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 15. The award will be presented at FAF’s annual Sunshine Luncheon Jan. 23, 2018, at the Governors Club in Tallahassee. For more info, contact email@example.com. [READ MORE]
