Orion has been named the winner of the 2010 Utne Independent Press Award for General Excellence!
In an official statement about the Awards, the Utne Reader said: “Orion has it all, artfully blending gorgeous personal narratives about nature with a cast of sharp, engaging columnists that push, provoke, and engage readers on a slew of topics ranging from energy use to enlightenment. Add in fresh environmental dispatches, stunning photo essays, and the unforgettable story of a former cop finding solace in the desert, and the year in this magazine’s pages was nothing less than a natural wonder.” The Utne Independent Press Awards recognize “the excellence and vitality of alternative and independent publishing.”
Our thanks to the Utne Reader, and congratulations to the 2010 finalists and the winners in all the Utne Independent Press Award categories.
