Miami New Times' Emily Witt placed first in Features, Weekly for "Band of Outsiders," while New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Kelly Cramer took first place in Non-Deadline News Weekly/Monthly for "Daddy's Girl." An alt-weekly was guaranteed a win in each of those categories, as AAN members accounted for all the nominees. Additional second-place Green Eyeshade Awards went to Miami New Times, the Nashville Scene and New Times Broward-Palm Beach. Creative Loafing (Charlotte) and the Memphis Flyer each took home a third-place award. The awards, which recognize outstanding journalism in 11 southeastern states, were presented at a banquet in Nashville on Saturday.
