Margaret Regan Wins National Award 

Weekly arts writer Margaret Regan won first place for arts criticism in the under 50,000-circulation category of the 2003 Alternative Newsweekly Awards contest.

The results were announced in Pittsburgh at the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies' annual convention on June 6.

The three pieces by Regan submitted for consideration by the judges were "Clearing the Eire," a book review of Maureen Dezell's Irish America: Coming into Clover that ran on March 14, 2002; "Wall Eyed," a story about A Guide to Tucson Architecture and its authors, Anne M. Nequette and R. Brooks Jeffery, that was published on April 11, 2002; and "Where the Girls Are," a piece on Lauren Greenfield's Girl Culture show at the Center for Creative Photogrophy from the Oct. 24, 2002, issue.

Of Regan's work, the judges said: "Margaret Regan writes about multiple subjects, but her photography criticism is especially compelling. Her breadth of knowledge is matched by a probing curiosity about the complex intersection of camera images and social mores."

The final-round judges in the arts criticism category were David B. Edelstein, the movie critic for online pub Slate and National Public Radio's Fresh Air; Christopher Knight, a critic for the Los Angeles Times who has twice been nominated for a Pulitzer; and D.K. Row, the art critic for The Oregonian in Portland, Ore.
