IP Scores Alternative Newsmedia 1st Place “Innovation/Format Buster” Award

Our recent comics journalism story “How to Survive a Shooting” has won 1st place for a 2014 Association of Alternative Newsmedia award. The nomination is for “Innovation/Format Buster” in the Outside-the-Box category.

Much thanks to the Chicago Reader for working with us on the Nov. 2013 piece.

Finalists were chosen as the most outstanding from a field of over 900 entries submitted by 77 alternative publications across the U.S. and Canada.

Held every year since 1996, the AAN Awards recognize the best in alternative journalism and are a unique chance for alt-weeklies to compete directly against the work of their peers in cities across the continent.
