Why we like awards...

These awards make us happy for one main reason: they confirm the stuff we suspected. The stuff that made us want to create January Magazine in the first place.

Humans care about books. More: they care about the people who create them. Traditional publications often don't have room to do this caring justice. Worse: sometimes they don't even believe it exists.

People like January Magazine. They like it enough to keep coming back to see what new stuff we've been up to. This is gratifying because it means we were right. It also means that people enjoy and appreciate what we're doing here, and that's very special. The awards confirm this in a very visual way that we can share here with you. Plus, we get to call ourselves "award-winning". That's sort of fun too.
