Last week in New Orleans, the Association of Alternative News-media handed out its annual awards for excellence in journalism. Our own Arts & Culture Editor, Leah Sottile, was on hand in NOLA, and The Inlander brought four AltWeekly Awards back to the Inland Northwest. Competing with newspapers like the Raleigh-Durham Independent, the Texas Observer, the Nashville Scene and Tucson Weekly, The Inlander was recognized in the categories of Illustration, Photography, News, and Public Service for work published in 2010.
