AltWeekly Awards Finalists to be Announced June 1

After several months of heavy reading and two rounds of evaluating nearly 1,100 entries, the judges of AAN’s annual journalism and design competition have rendered decisions. The finalists for the 2010 AltWeekly Awards will be announced on Tuesday, June 1–with the final rankings to be revealed at the AltWeekly Awards banquet on July 16 during AAN’s Annual Convention in Toronto.

Now in its 15th year, AAN’s editorial awards contest expanded in 2010 to include three new online categories: Individual Blogger, Multimedia, and Music Blog. The awards luncheon in Toronto will be hosted by Gustavo Arellano, staff writer for OC Weekly and author of the nationally syndicated weekly column ‘¡Ask A Mexican!’.
