Every year the Association of Alternative Newsmedia gathers to honor the best work of its nearly 100 member publications with origins or tradition in what used to be called alternative weeklies. This year’s AAN Awards celebration of the best of the alt press was held virtually on Zoom. The Reader did well, bringing home seven awards and an honorable mention in seven categories.
As we celebrate, we’ll also take the opportunity to call your attention to this award-winning work from the past year—some of which you might have missed.
At the end of 2018, shortly after becoming a locally owned independent company again, we started an experiment in asking for direct financial contributions from our readers and supporters. Everyone who has donated so far has helped make this ongoing success possible. Thank you!
