Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

A heapin' helpin' of huzzahs and mazel tovs are in order today for two Dallas Observer staffers: Megan Feldman and Alexander Flores. Both are among the finalists in the 13th annual AltWeekly Awards, which will be handed out by the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies during the first week of June in Philadelphia. Megan's among the three finalists in the feature writing category for her piece "El Tren de la Muerte," which ran last July. And three of Alex's covers are among those nominated in the design category, including the one pictured above. Incidentally, several of Alex's Observer covers and layouts are also up for an award courtesy the Dallas Society of Visual Communications, which'll hand out its accolades June 7. But they're not in this for the awards, only the exorbitant and wholly nonexistent cash prizes. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
