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
-- 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.
