Off to the big city for the presentations of the 2014 Hillman Prizes for Journalism. I’ll be tweeting from my seat in the front row at the New York Times Center, maybe even doing a little live-blogging starting around 6 PM. You can follow along on Twitter by checking in at #hillman2014 or jumping into my feed or you just sit right here and watch the action unfold in the Twitter widget over in the left-hand sidebar.
The winners are, as usual, a diverse and impressive bunch, starting with the great digby, Heather Parton, who is being given this year’s prize for Opinion & Analysis.
You can sample the work of the other winners online too:
