Winners (right column) of the 11th "Waseda Journalism Award in Memory of Ishibashi Tanzan" were decided and a presentation ceremony was held on November 10. After an address by President Kamata, each winner was presented with a certificate, commemorative medal and prize money in recognition of their efforts.

Screening committee member Shinichi Sano commented, "The Japanese media seemed like an Imperial announcement after March 11, but these winning works show that Japanese journalism is not dead yet. I think that these four works suitably represent a "Japan in 2011" that will long be engraved in the minds of generations to come," and the awardees also spoke lively of their creations and work. At the awards ceremony, as well as the award recipients, starting with people from television crews making efforts in reporting and broadcasting, media-related people and students from the commemorative course "News Changes Society", about 130 people were in attendance.

On this day, "Communicating Journalists" (Waseda University Press), a summary of this year's commemorative course, was published.
