Announcing the 2006 David Neiwert Awards

This morning, the Northwest Progressive Institute is pleased to present the 2006 David Neiwert Awards to honor the achievements and accomplishments of the Pacific Northwest's most active progressive bloggers. This is the second year of the awards, which we hope to continue to make an annual and celebrated tradition.

They are named for David Neiwert, a freelance journalist and the founder of one of the Northwest's most respected blogs, Orcinus, which has been on the Web since the beginning of 2003 and is syndicated on Pacific NW Portal.

Honorees are nominated and selected by the staff of the Northwest Progressive Institute with assistance and input from the Awards' namesake.

Besides writing Orcinus, Mr. Neiwert has reported for and has also penned several outstanding books, including Strawberry Days, Death on the Fourth of July, and In God's Country.

NPI thanks Mr. Neiwert for graciously agreeing to allow us to name this awards tradition in his honor, and we offer our congratulations and heartfelt thanks to the 2006 recipients. View the awards presentation by following this link.
