InTransition Honored for Excellence in Journalism

For the second consecutive year, InTransition has been recognized by the New Jersey Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for its quality reporting on transportation issues.

InTransition Managing Editor Karl Vilacoba took second-place in the Magazine Business Reporting category of the NJSPJ’s 2010 New Jersey Excellence in Journalism Awards. His story “Re-Inventing the Wheel,” which appeared in the Winter 2009 issue, examined some of the unique, non-gasoline powered alternative transportation modes under development around the world. Vilacoba previously won a first-place award in the same category in 2009.

The contest was open to any individual or news organization that published in New Jersey or wrote about topics in the state in 2009.
