Pulitzer Prizes announced; California Watch a finalist again

Monday, April 15, 2013

For the second year in a row, California Watch, the online organ of the Center for Investigative Reporting, was named a finalist for one of journalism’s most prestigious honors. Ryan Gabrielson’s series “Broken Shield” about the appalling systemic failure to protect residents in the state’s developmental centers, was a runner-up for the public service Pulitzer. The South Florida Sun Sentinel won for its story on speeding police officers. There’s a complete list of winners at Poynter; California Watch posts about its near miss.

Last year, California Watch was a finalist in the local reporting category for its series about faulty seismic safety oversight at K-12 schools.
