The Holiday Scoop journo party will be free!

Update Dec. 7: The City of Seattle has decided to enforce an admission-fee policy against us, requiring us to pay taxes on this nonprofit scholarship fundraiser. So, instead of giving the city a cut of the Northwest Journalists of Color scholarships, we are opening the party to all invitees for free. Donations are welcome online and at the event. To trim costs, we have eliminated the karaoke throwdown.

Join your friends and colleagues for Seattle’s biggest journalist party of the year: The Holiday Scoop 2011. Let’s celebrate the holidays, great journalism and the successes of our local news organizations. Our 2nd annual all-media holiday party will bring together television, radio, online and print journalists. All Puget Sound-based newsroom staffers and former staffers invited. Nosh on hors d’oeuvres and drink at our no-host bar. Lori Matsukawa of KING TV will emcee again! (See photos of last year’s event)

We have added two new competitive events this year!

News Caption Contest. Write your finest, wittiest caption for a photo we will provide at the party. Your caption will be shown on the big screen at the event and you will be entered into a raffle drawing. Entries cost $10, and you can pay the entry fee in advance or at the party.

This event is not sponsored by any company or organization, but is being funded by your private donations and program ad sales. All proceeds will benefit AAJA Seattle’s Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship, a 25-year program for talented college students who aspire to become professional journalists.
