The Los Angeles Times has won seven Sigma Delta Chi awards from the Society of Professional Journalists. The competition recognizes all forms of journalism in categories including print, television, radio, graphics, magazines, research, newsletters and online.

Among the honorees is Columnist Steve Lopez, who won for general column writing; and The Times Staff, which was honored for online deadline reporting for the Labor Day coverage of the tragic boat fire off the Santa Barbara coast.

In addition, Mexico City-based Correspondent Kate Linthicum was honored for foreign correspondence; Data Journalist Casey Miller won for data visualization; Reporter Susanne Rust, Photographer Carolyn Cole and Columbia Journalism Fellow Ali Raj were honored for non-deadline reporting; Staff Writer Paige St. John, in partnership with Wondery, received the John C. Ensslin Award for Podcast Excellence; and Photographer Wally Skalij was recognized for sports photography.

Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine said in an announcement to the newsroom that the awards represent “an extraordinary accomplishment in a year when no other news organization won more than two awards.
