||On July 20, 2000, The Boston Phoenix Web site took home the LISA (Local Internet Service Award) for Best
Local Arts and Entertainment Service. We were one of four finalists for this national award and competition was
fierce. We beat out AOL/Digital City, washingtonpost.com and SignOn San Diego. The judges said our site had the
best overall presentation, depth and that it "just plain works."|
Special congrats to our Web team -- Clif Garboden, Camille Dodero, Nick Zaino and Minda Berbeco -- for winning
this award. And special thanks to Jeffrey Gantz, Jon Garelick, Sean Richardson, Carly Carioli, Matt Ashare, Peter
Keough, Carolyn Clay, and the rest of the Boston Phoenix Arts staff and freelancers for creating the award-winning
content - without which even the best Web presentation (which we apparently have) wouldn't have gotten any attention.
Recognized as Best Newspaper Web Site
(2001, Alternative Weekly Class) by the New England Press Association.
