TakePart Wins LA Press Club National Entertainment Journalism Award

TakePart‘s Elise Varnell, Catherine Manzanares and Rachel Kraus were named winners last night of The LA Press Club’s National Entertainment Journalism Award for Best Journalistic Use of Social Media by An Organization for the Food, Inc. Facebook Page.

The judge commented:  “Utilizing social media is an art itself.  Rather than just promoting the film, ‘Food, Inc.’, TakePart reached out to educate the public and continues to do so with tweets and Facebook updates, videos and news.  TakePart overall has been ahead of the game, social media-wise, but the Food, Inc. presentation was exceptional.”

In the same category, the same team placed 3rd for TakePart’s Social Media Presence,  beating out two entries from People Magazine (Grammy coverage and Coachella coverage).
