11 Dec The biggest journalism party of the year is back!
The 6th annual Holiday Scoop is here to bring together area journalists and their supporters in one big year-end bash. Donâ€™t miss it!
Last yearâ€™s event raised several thousand dollars in Society of Professional Journalists – Western Washington chapter scholarships for aspiring journalists. This year, we hope to raise even more to help the next generation.

Hereâ€™s why this yearâ€™s event, co-hosted once again by your SPJ chapter and AAJA Seattle, is where you want to be on Dec. 20:
â€¢ Get in at the lower price introduced last year: $15 in advance, $20 at the door
â€¢ Buy prints donated by the NW Photojournalism Print Swap to help raise money for â€œPassion Projectsâ€ for visual journalists, who have been hit hard in the downsizing of newspaper newsrooms. But that hasnâ€™t stopped many of them from continuing their passionate work. They are actively working on visual projects and films that cover a range of local and regional topics including environmental issues like coal, oil, pipelines, pollution; as well as social issues such as the sex trade, immigration and hidden communities.
