City Pages nominated for three AAN awards

Every year, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies selects the best work from its member papers. Yesterday, the finalists were announced, and City Pages has been nominated for three awards for papers with a circulation of 55,000 or more.

The "Innovation" category focuses on creativity in journalism, which may be expressed in print, online or a combination. Our Rock Atlas, both in print (12.3 megabyte PDF) and online, is one of three finalists in that category. Congratulations to art director Nick Vlcek, artist Kevin Cannon, and author Peter Scholtes.

In the photography category, Vlcek garnered another nomination. His photographs for "Boy, Interrupted," our story about an anorexic man, earned him one of four finalist slots.

For food writing, a sampler of former staff writer Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl's work ("Then There Were None," "Port Is The Answer?," and "Colonel Mustard") made her one of three nominated for the food writing award.

We write for readers, not for awards, but it's still a nice feeling when your efforts are recognized. Whether or not we're fortunate enough to win, thanks to all of you who read what we do, because that's what makes it all worthwhile.
