At last night's 57th Annual Southern California Journalism Awards, the L.A. Press Club honored the Streetsblog L.A. family with three of its prestigious awards. Streetsblog L.A. is a project of the Southern California Streets Initiative, which also runs LongBeachIze, Santa Monica Next, and now Streetsblog California. Last night's honors included:

    • Best News Feature (Online) went to SBLA Communities Editor Sahra Sulaiman for her excellent March 2014 article To Be or Not To Be a Gang-Banger: Is that Really the Question?
    • Online Journalist of the Year went to Brian Addison for his work at SBLA sister site LongBeachIze, as well as at the Long Beach Post.
    • Best Group Blog went to the Streetsblog Los Angeles 2014 team: Melanie Curry, Joe Linton, Damien Newton, and Sahra Sulaiman. This is the second year in a row that we received this honor.

Kudos to all the winners, and to the rest of the nominees, too. If you read SBLA and you like the daily award-winning coverage we provide, please support us!
