Shameless Self-Promotion

The Alibi’s Greatest Hits

Every year, we round up articles and submit them to contests. Sorting through back issues and submitting articles can become a hectic affair of scissors, glue sticks, newspaper shreds, envelopes, sharpies, etc. Still, it’s the only time we reflect on our work as a whole.

Contests have categories and requirements. A lot of our best work last year didn’t fit in those boxes (man).

Here is but a small sampling of blue-ribbon (in my heart, anyway) 2009 features. Some of them may have been entered. It’s hard to remember after all the glue-stick huffing.
