As publisher Dan Brogan noted, last week was a great one for 5280. The magazine was named again as a finalist for a National Magazine Award and was nominated for five awards from the City and Regional Magazine Association.
The National Magazine Award nod went to “Low on O2,” 5280’s in-depth look at the often-misunderstood effects of living at high altitude, which appeared in the October 2009 issue and was written by staffers Lindsey B. Koehler and Natasha Gardner.

- Writer of the Year: Robert Sanchez
- Photo Essay: “The Forgotten Plains,” by Jefferson Panis
- Reader Service: “Snow Business,” by Lindsey B. Koehler, Natasha Gardner, Patrick Doyle, Julie Dugdale, Geoff Van Dyke, Corey H. Jones
