I was awarded for my work in infographics, website design, social media engagement and page design in the Southern California journalism awards contest.

The awards are sponsored by the Los Angeles Press Club and were given in 2021 for content created in 2020.

Infographics – All Platforms, 1st Place | “Increase in Cities’ OC Sheriff Contracts Since 2016” | By Sonya Quick and Nick Gerda | Judges commented:

“The sheriff protection costs graphics submitted for this entry tell a full story on their own. This was a perfect article to complement with interactive graphics, and the design and execution was on point too. The graphics add context and make smart comparisons about police spending.”
