Who championed open government in 2020? And who blocked it?

Transparency FTW! The San Diego Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is continuing our annual tradition of recognizing the most helpful — and least helpful — public agencies and officials through our Window, Wall and Sunshine Awards. 

And we need your help with nominations!

The Window Award will go to the person or public agency that most prioritized transparency and the public’s right to know in 2020. Our Wall Award will go to the person or public agency that made it hardest for journalists to do their jobs in 2020, ignoring requests or otherwise compromising the public’s right to know. And our Sunshine Award will go to a journalist or community member who worked the hardest to make the government more transparent and hold elected officials accountable.

Submit nominations here by Feb. 28, 2021. You can read up on last year’s winners (and losers) here.
