What the judges had to say: “It’s clearly an exceptional publication when even the calendar listings are fun to read. More important, the writers’ voices shine, and they are not afraid to tackle sensitive subjects. While entertaining and informing, this magazine also exhibits its social conscience with a monthly feature illustrating the area’s affordable housing crisis”.
