Competing against newspapers across the state, the Weekly Alibi swept the New Mexico Press Women Communications Contest with 9 awards. The Alibi's food writing, arts and entertainment coverage, news reporting, features, columns and editing were chosen as superlative in New Mexico.

Seven of the entries are first-place winners and will go on to the National Federation of Press Women Communications Contest, where they'll square off against every other Press Women chapter in the country. (The NFPW is a nationwide organization of professional women and men in the press and media fields.) We expect to do well there, as we've done every year that we've entered.

Here's a list of the Alibi's winners:

First Place: News reporting, Marisa Demarco
