Abstract:
The Utne Reader has nominated THE FUTURIST magazine, published bimonthly by the nonprofit World Future Society, ( http://www.wfs.org ) for an Independent Press Award in the category of science and technology coverage. "This is the 19th time we've had the honor of judging this unique contest, and I can say with confidence that the task has never been tougher—or more enjoyable," Utne Reader editor in chief David Schimke wrote in a letter to THE FUTURIST. "More than 1,300 periodicals circulate through our library, and [THE FUTURIST's] hard work consistently surprised, informed, challenged, and entertained us."
