Speak Up Won!


A few hours ago in Glasgow, Scotland, at the annual International Network of Street Papers Summit, Speak Up was announced as the winner of the award for “Best Vendor Contribution.”

We are so proud of writer Vince for sharing this intimate and authentic portrait of his life on the streets. This issue—entirely written and photographed by Vince—is gritty, funny, heartbreaking and inspiring. 

Of the dozen or so awards given annually, this is our favorite: because it recognizes the talents and voices of writers and vendors who are facing homelessness. We’ve been honored to have been selected as a finalist three out of the last four years for this award—and this as our second win.

Thank you for the support that makes it all possible.
