Who Pushed (or Blocked) Transparency in 2022?

It’s that time again. The San Diego Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is preparing to continue our annual spring tradition of recognizing the most helpful — and least helpful — public agencies and officials. We’re now seeking nominations.

Our Wall Award will go to the person or public agency that made it hardest for journalists to do their jobs in 2022, ignoring requests or otherwise compromising the public’s right to know.

The Window Award will go to the person or public agency that most prioritized transparency and the public’s right to know in 2022.

And our Sunshine Award will go to a journalist or community member who worked the hardest to make government more transparent and hold elected officials accountable.

In recent years, we have also awarded Skylight Awards to San Diegans who have devoted their careers to championing the public’s right to know. 

Submit nominations here by Feb. 6, 2023. You can read up on last year’s winners (and losers) here.

Stay tuned for more details on this year’s SD-SPJ Walls and Windows celebration in the weeks to come.
