Top of the Rockies finalists announced!

We’d like to congratulate the finalists of this year’s Top of the Rockies regional journalism contest. Download the .pdf of the winners here TOR_Finalists_2013 judgments-results-433.136797908 (exact rankings revealed at the Awards Reception Friday May 17 at the Denver Press Club).

We had a record number of entries this year, so the Colorado Pro chapter would like to thank you all for participating. Journalists are working harder than ever, and there’s fewer of us. The award winners represent some the best work in Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. These are your watchdogs making sure governments and corporations are behaving; your storytellers who can take us to another world or plant us in someone else’s shoes; your information gatherers and sharers – no matter the medium.

Let’s celebrate our noble profession and toast some fine work over the past year at the Top of the Rockies Awards Reception, 5:30 p.m. (presentations start at 6:30) Friday, May 17, at the historic and storied Denver Press Club, 1330 Glenarm St., Denver. Appetizers provided with the cash bar. Winners are free, but could everyone else make a small donation to help cover costs? RSVP here.
