<p>[Your Publication] Wins 2003 Utne Independent Press Award</p>
<p>[Your city, Your State, Month day, year] — Utne, the nation’s leading magazine of alternative ideas, announces the selection of [Your Publication] for an Utne Independent Press Award in the category of [Your Category]. Since 1989 these awards have showcased the best from the Independent Press in categories ranging from reporting excellence to personal life, cultural and international coverage.</p>
<p>[Your Publication] stands out as an important independent media voice. We are pleased to honor your accomplishments with an Utne Independent Press Award,” said Editor Jay Walljasper.</p>
<p>[A little personal information here is always a good idea, such as a description of your company’s latest and/or greatest achievement.]</p>
<p>The Utne Independent Press Awards (<a href=”https://www.utne.com/uipa.aspx”>https://www.utne.com/uipa/</a>), previously known as Utne Reader Alternative Press Awards, recognize excellence in alternative and independent publishing. Utne’s editors select nominee publications through their extensive reading process and careful examination, rather than a competition requiring entry forms and fees. In this way, Utne honors the efforts of small, sometimes unnoticed publications that provide innovative, thought-provoking perspectives often ignored or overlooked by mass media.</p>
<p>Utne magazine, the nation’s leading digest of the alternative media, has a paid circulation of 225,000. Since 1984, Utne has published the most innovative thinking on the critical issues of our time, always informing and inspiring its readers to action.</p>
<p>[Make sure to include the boilerplate description of your company too.]</p>
