  • Competition Comment: The entries in this category for this year show a scale of how the criteria for the category is interpreted. Reporter initiative means those entries where the journalist goes beyond the invite, beyond the news tip to dig and pull together as many sources and information as they can to create a solid article/portfolio that demonstrates their effort. The finalists and recipient clearly showed their effort and initiative in their submissions.
