More about the award:

More than 100 judges from national publications—including Esquire, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, Outside, Saveur, Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair—reviewed city magazines from around the country and chose five finalists before selecting Seattle Met as the winner for its circulation category (30,000 to 60,000).

Explaining their decision, the judges wrote:

“The magazine exudes the city of Seattle. With a solid sense of place and adventures in food, wine, and design, Seattle Met appeals to young and hip and everyone else. Deep, rich writing complements a wide spectrum of topics, all displayed with vibrant photography and a true awareness of what it means to live in Seattle.”
