2000 List of Nominees

| November/December 2000

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

Every year since 1989, Utne Reader editors have gathered to debate, haggle, cajole, and eventually agree on a list of the year's best offerings from the alternative press. Unlike most publishing awards, these picks have no nominating process, no entrance fee, no panel of outside experts. It's just our editorial staff, immersed all year in hundreds of quirky publications, arguing for their favorites. The result is an eclectic list of magazines, tabloids, zines, journals, and newsletters we think you might like to get to know better. We'd also like to hear from you about your favorites. Give us your picks at www.utne.com, where you can also find descriptions and ordering information for these publications.
