Altweekly Award Finalists Are In

The 2011 Altweekly Award finalists were just announced. For the first time in what seems like many, many years, the Village Voice leads this year’s pack with eight nominations. L.A. Weekly has five finalists this year–including Jonathan Gold and Gendy Alimurung–while OC Weekly has three.  San Diego CityBeat also picked up three nominations–including finalists in the long news and short news categories.

Winners will be announced at the annual Altweekly convention on July 22 in New Orleans.

Congrats to all. Full list of finalists here.
