We are so very proud to announce that The Washingtonian took home two awards at the annual City and Regional Magazine Awards in Las Vegas this past weekend: in profile writing, for Tom Bartlett's profile of Gene Weingarten in the December 2011 issue; and in excellence in writing, for the March 2011 issue. The magazine was also a finalist in several other categories: special issue (November 2011), ancillary publication (Washingtonian Bride & Groom), and leisure service (last August's "Great Day Trips 2011"). And Best Bites Blog's own Jessica Voelker was a finalist for food writing for her work last year at Seattle Met.
A huge congratulations to our entire staff. To revisit our award-winning articles, see the links below.
