For the third straight year, San Diego SPJ will be handing out two important awards to recognize the most helpful and least helpful sources from public agencies in 2016.

The Window Award will go to the public official or agency that most prioritized transparency and the public’s right to know in 2016.

The Wall Award will go to the public official or agency that made it hardest for journalists to do their jobs in 2016, ignoring requests or otherwise compromising the public’s right to know.

Your nominations are key to our selection process. Give us your nominations here.

We’ll give out both awards in the spring, along with our prestigious annual Sunshine Award, which recognizes individuals and groups for making important contributions in the area of open government. Stay tuned for event details. And thanks for taking part in this invaluable exercise of ours to protect the public’s essential access to information.
