SPJ Awards 

by Inlander Staff


On Saturday night in Coeur d'Alene, the Inland Northwest Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists handed out its annual awards for achievements in journalism published in 2002. Competing in the non-daily category, The Inlander took home 15 awards in all, including, for the second time, first place in the coveted "General Excellence" category. Designed to reward consistency, judges compared three consecutive issues from the entrants, which came from western Montana, Idaho and Eastern Washington. "Excellent overall presentation," was how the judge described The Inlander's issues of October 3, 10 and 17 (seen above). Here's are the rest of the awards.
