SoCal Struggles at AltWeekly Awards

For the first time this Fishie can remember the LA Weekly picked up only one first place award at the annual AltWeekly Awards. The paper cleaned house at the awards for years under Laurie Ochoa. But this year only Patrick Range McDonald got the nod in the Advocacy Journalism category. Jonathan Gold may have been a Pulitzer finalist this year, but his efforts somehow earned him only second place in the Food Writing category.

Also surprising, no first place awards for the OC Weekly.

Both papers did pick up a number of second and third places, however–as did the Pasadena Weekly and the San Diego CityBeat. Full list of winners here.
