Weekly awards

The LA Weekly picked up four first-place AltWeekly Awards, the most of any paper. From the release:

The Los Angeles paper won not only for Jonathan Gold's sterling food writing but for outstanding collaborations between designers and writers. It took first place (tying with Miami New Times) in Editorial Layout for "Kids Rock," in Format Buster for "Zeitlist" and in Special Section for "Best of L.A.," which was based on a "seven deadly sins" theme.

CityBeat won a first in photography.
