At an awards ceremony in Washington D.C. on Sunday April 25th, The Journal of Music was announced as the winner of the 2010 Utne Independent Press Award for Arts Coverage. The Utne awards, now in their twenty-first year, survey over 1,300 independent magazines from all around the world.
In selecting The Journal of Music, the judges wrote: ‘The Journal of Music stands well apart from the pack in the music press, both because it’s published in Ireland and because it covers such a wide range of music in its pages, from classical and folk to pop and jazz. In articles written by musicians but meant for all, this magazine brings to life the craftsmanship, artistry and passion-stirring powers of music.’
This is a great honour for the magazine and we would like to thank all of our readers, writers and funders who have helped make the magazine a success.
