The Tucson Weekly won three awards in the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies' 2010 Altweekly Awards. The results were announced Friday, July 16, at the AAN annual convention.

Weekly art director Adam Kurtz nabbed top honors in the editorial layout category (less than 50,000 circulation) for his print layout of "The Strange Saga of Geronimo's Skull" (June 11, 2009)

Renee Downing nabbed second place honors for political column. She won for "Unfortunately, Arizonans Are Getting What We're Paying For" (Dec. 10, 2009), "Price Tags: The Elephant in the Room in Health Care" (Nov. 12, 2009) and "If You May One Day Need to Go to an ER, You Should Support Health-Care Reform" (Sept. 17, 2009).

Tim Vanderpool won his third Altweekly Award in the last three years, this time earning honorable mention in the short-form news category, for his coverage of Tucson Greyhound Park: "Kennel No. 1" (April 23, 2009), "Ordinance Ignored" (Oct. 15, 2009) and "Greyhound Runaround" (Dec. 3, 2009).
