In 1990, a small bunch of free-thinkers came to the conclusion that Indianapolis needed an independent voice — a voice designed, as one early editor put it, “to make trouble.” That concept matured into a mission statement that directs us “to empower intelligent, open-minded innovators through storytelling…NUVO is created by and for people who love our community, our culture and our environment.”
We cover everything Central Indiana cares about, from arts to food to music to social justice and environmental concerns, all in our own unique, irreverent and passionate manner. NUVO is available in print every Wednesday, in special guides five times a year, and online all the time.

What’s in the water?
Judge’s comments: “This in-depth story not only contains valuable and important information, it presents it in a way that is accessible and clear, even to today’s distracted reader. It was obviously the product of much research and benefited from involving many members of the newsroom and production staff — it clearly distinguished itself among the competition.”
