The Denver-based alt-weekly won the Local/Regional Coverage category of the progressive magazine's competition. According to Utne's Web site, Westword was selected because "the arts coverage is refreshingly unaffected, the columnists routinely surprise, and the award-winning investigative work is as gutsy as it is well written." Nominees for the awards were chosen from among 2,000 alternative media sources.
