We’ve received some great feedback from our judges on the quality of entries in the Alaska Press Club Awards. Here’s some of what they had to say:

“Judging this contest felt like a near-impossible task. Almost all of the entries could have earned first-place recognition. It’s comforting to know the residents of Alaska have such capable watchdogs holding the criminal justice system accountable.” – Judge for Best Legal Affairs Reporting

“Having judged countless competitions, I am not exaggerating in saying that viewers of television news in Alaska are the beneficiaries of some of the finest feature reporting anywhere.” – Judge for TV Best Feature

“I’ve been a contest judge for more than 15 years and in multiple states. This is the most compelling, robust environmental reporting I have ever seen. The competition this year went above and beyond anything I had hoped to watch, listen to or read as a judge. I must salute all of the journalists who submitted entries in this category. Your work goes beyond Alaska to issues about which all Americans should be informed. Really well done!” – Judge for Best Environmental Reporting
