Alaska Commons Brings Home Shinies from the Alaska Press Club Awards

On Saturday night, the Alaska Commons team (or at least those of us near Anchorage and able to find a babysitter on what also turned out to be Prom night) attended the Alaska Press Club awards dinner.

The Alaska Press Club competition is judged by peers working within the journalism industry. The awards were announced and handed at the end of the annual Alaska Press Club conference, a three-day sprint of production workshops, current events panels, and arguments over whether “Outside” should be capitalized or not (the consensus came down on the side of capitalization).

Your intrepid Alaska Commons team did not strive in vain. We are honored to report that we received a total of nine awards for our blood, sweat, and tears. Thank you, loyal readers, for your patronage and feedback over the past year. We couldn’t do what we do without you — and wouldn’t want to, that would seem a bit ridiculous, wouldn’t it?

Thanks for tuning in throughout 2013, and here’s to another year of covering this amazing community. We hope you’ll hang a round, it’s sure to be a wild ride.

Sincerely,

the team
