Slake, LA Times Writers Named as Finalists for Livingston Awards

Two of the 20 finalists for the 2011 Livingston Awards for Young Journalists hail from local publications. Staff writer Molly Hennessy-Fiske of the Los Angeles Times is in the running, and Cindy Carcamo has been nominated for a piece that appeared in local literary journal Slake: Los Angeles. Carcamo is a reporter for the OC Register.

On the statewide front, Kelley Weiss and Ryan Gabrielson are both finalists for stories they did at nonprofit investigative reporting group California Watch.

About the awards, per the website:

The Livingston Awards for excellence by professionals under the age of 35 are the largest all-media, general reporting prizes in American journalism. They are also unusual in judging print, broadcast and online entries against one another, a practice of increasing interest as technology blurs traditional distinctions between rival branches of the profession.

Winners will be announced on June 6.
