A Public Service Announcement

Always wished someone would recognize you for your great work?
Got a story you want the world (okay, maybe a couple hundred people) to see?
Want to call attention to a collegue's fantastic journalism?

Well, here's your chance.

The good people at Ten95 are taking nominations for the Best YBJ Writing of The Year. In a few weeks, the Ten95 contributors you've come to know and love will comb through the submissions and post our favorites.
(Fifteen minutes of fame for the selected lucky writers will surely ensue.)

Who can submit work?
Anyone who reads the blog, but preferably members of the YBJ listserv (oddly enough, the two are probably one in the same).

What can be submitted?
Any article, commentary or news outlet blog post (preferably by a YBJ member) published in 2006 that caught your eye, made you think or just stuck out as a darn-good piece of journalism.
And yes, you can submit more than one.

How do I submit work?
E-mail the name of the author and their article (or a working link) to ten95blog [at] gmail [dot] com. If you don't have all of the information, send us as much as you can and we'll try to track down the article.

Why are we doing this?
As minorities in journalism, we feel that, frankly, we don't see enough of each other's work. We want a chance to recognize you, our peers, for the reporting done over the past year and celebrate our successes together.

So get to sending in those submissions -- and don't be afraid to nominate yourself!
