How many awards does it take to draw in a subscriber?

Just one more, it seems.

If the New Internationalist magazine were a wine bottle, there’d be so many gold medals that there’d barely be room for the label. And if we were a blockbuster movie, the nominations and award wins would be so numerous, you could melt down the poster to retrieve the gold.

Now I know modesty is golden too, but just occasionally I hope we might be forgiven for sharing the accolades we’ve had from our peers, just so you know you’re not the only one who thinks we’re worth supporting. Here are a few of the awards that I know about:
