Utne Reader - Winners of the 2007 Utne Independent Press Awards

Here are this year's winners. If you go to their site, you can get a brief description of why each magazine received its honor -- and to get a link to the magazine's web page.

When I worked for an independent magazine distributor in Seattle, these awards were a big deal. You always see a few of the well-known magazines, for which this recognition is meaningless, but there are always some small magazines for whom this award can launch them into the big time. Even being nominated is a real big deal for the small magazines and zines.
