The Express won three first-place awards at the Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards dinner in Foster City on Saturday night.
Arts Editor Nate Seltenrich won first place in the Feature Story of a Serious Nature category among non-dailies for his December 2010 story on the environmental impacts of large-scale solar development in the California desert, "Oakland Invades the Desert."

Former editor Stephen Buel won two first-place awards — in Editorial and Page Design, both among non-dailies — for his July 2010 cover and editor's note on the Mehserle trial, "Be Cool."

The contest was open to all Bay Area print and online journalists, photographers, radio and television personnel, and public relations professionals, and received a total of 523 entries.
