MAKE nominated for Independent Press Awards

MAKE nominated for Independent Press Awards

We are thrilled to announce that MAKE has been nominated for the 21st Annual Independent Press Awards, put on by Utne Reader. We were nominated in the Science/Technology category. The other nominees are California (the magazine, not the state), IEEE Spectrum, Johns Hopkins Public Health, Miller-McCune, Science News, Stanford, and Technology Review.

Sayeth the press release:

Utne Reader’s editors select nominee publications through an extensive reading process and careful, yearlong examination, rather than via a competition with entry forms and fees. In this way, the magazine honors the efforts of small, sometimes unnoticed publications that provide innovative, thought-provoking perspectives often ignored or overlooked by mass media.

Congrats to everybody who works so tirelessly and passionately to create MAKE, Make: Online, and everything else we do. Your work does get noticed!
