A little horn-tooting

Posted on Tue, Jun 21, 2005 at 4:04 PM

Seven Days picked up a few awards last weekend at the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies Annual Convention in San Diego. They split the awards into two categories — papers with circulations above and below 50,000. We competed in the under 50,000 field.

Our 2004 7 Nights nightlife guide won an honorable mention for best special section. Margot Harrison, our pithy lit critic, won 3rd place in the Arts Criticism category. And Don Eggert, our Art Director and web guy, picked up a 1st place award for editorial layout on my story "The Blogger" from last October.

Dan Savage, editor of Seattle's The Stranger, presented the awards. Says Don of Dan: "He told me I was pretty, and he said he didn't think the alternative papers employed any pretty people any more." It's true, Don is pretty.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
