AAEC winners at the 2018 AAN Awards


A huge congratulations to Cullum Rogers, who won 1st Place in the Out of the Box/Cartoons category from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia. This was the second year in a row Rogers took first place for his cartoons in the Durham, North Carolina-based Indy Week. It was also the last time his work would be eligible, as the shrinking alt-weekly laid off the cartoonist earlier this year. Way to go out on top, Cullum! 

And kudos to Russell Hodin and Jen Sorensen, who were also cited for their alt-weekly work. Hodin took home 3rd Place, and Sorensen received an Honorable Mention.
