June 28, 2015 - Since Society of Professional Journalists’ Georgia chapter launched the ‘Larry Peterson Memorial Award for Investigative Journalism’ in early June, its Facebook has received hundreds of posts and close to a thousand professional journalists and student journalists who have been contacted in SPJ Region 3 which includes Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Alabama. 

The Larry Peterson Memorial Award for Investigative Journalism was developed to celebrate the life of Larry Peterson and his 40 years of contributions as an investigative journalist and the “dogged seeker of truth.” Peterson worked as a political reporter and as an editor at the Savannah Morning News the last 15 years of his life. He also held journalism positions California, Washington and Wisconsin before landing in Georgia.

The Larry Peterson Memorial Award for Investigative Journalism will recognize professionals and students who have produced quality investigative reporting in either broadcast, print, online or radio.  Southern journalists are encouraged to submit their entries early to be the first to be seen by the distinguished judges.

For professional journalists, along with the inaugural award, there will be a $400 gift* to go to the best investigative reporting from any category.

For student journalists, along with the inaugural award, there will be a $100 gift* to go to the best investigative reporting from any category.

*The monetary award will also be given every year. 

All entries must have been published, broadcast or placed online between September 1, 2014 and August 1, 2015, and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on August 30, 2015. 

There is a website for the award at https://larrypetersonaward.wordpress.com, and a Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/larrypetersonaward
