Awards Season 

The accolades the Inlander earned this year from regional and national journalism groups

Journalists work for readers, not the awards, but it's still nice to get a pat on the back from time to time. This year, competing against weeklies in the region and across the country, Inlander writers took home honors for stories in several categories, including health, sports, business and economic inequality reporting. The paper also placed in cover design and editorial layout. Check out all the details below; you can also revisit these stories at
