Exciting news over here at Sactown HQ: We've been nominated for two 2017 national Folio awards! (Folio is the magazine for the magazine industry.)

One nod is for Best Photography for senior contributing photographer Max Whittaker’s poignant and powerful photo essay “Troubled Waters” in the April/May issue, which chronicled the crisis at the Oroville Dam in February. View the photo essay here.

Sactown is also nominated for Best Illustration for Leif Jones’ extraordinary portrait of author Kim Stanley Robinson in “The Man Who Fell From Earth” (below) in the Feb/March issue. Link to the full story here.
