UPDATE: Visit the nominees and winners of the 2009 Utne Independent Press Awards.

As we have done every fall for the past 15 years, Utne editors recently sat down to discuss, argue, and ruminate over the periodicals that most moved us in the past year. It's not a job for the faint of heart, considering we're choosing the best from the more than 1,600 publications that line our library's shelves. Far from a scientific undertaking, this annual exercise in journalistic judgment relies more on instinct, experience, and fond recollection than quantifiable evidence, but the nominees that emerged this year -- as they do every year -- speak eloquently for the quality of the independent media.
