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

It's time again to shine light on the alternative press and celebrate our favorite magazines. Throughout the year, we read, skim, and glean from more than 1,300 periodicals-from hand-scribbled zines to manicured glossies-and countless Web sites in search of the most inspiring, enlightening, and meaningful prose to share with our readers. The Utne Independent Press Awards toast publications that make us laugh, cry, wonder, argue, read aloud, act out, photocopy, and even, truth be told, buy personal subscriptions.

Through a rigorous if subjective process, we've narrowed the field to the following nominees; find more about them at www.utne.com/uipa. We'll unveil the winners in the January/February 2006 issue.
