BW is also a top-three finalist in the category of “Cover Design” for selected covers printed in 2012.

The finalists were chosen from a field of more than 900 entries. Boulder Weekly had won five AAN awards in its 20-year history; the last came in 2009.

The winners will be announced during a reception on July 13 at the AAN Annual Convention in Miami.
