“Best Online Zine” (2009) |“Poetry Magazine of the Year”(2010) 

Born out of necessity in 2004, TRIBES magazine came to life as self-sustaining artists across the U.S. were calling out for a voice. Soon, indie artists from around the globe came to rely on TRIBES as a platform for showcasing their talent. Each issue is throbbing with the beat of music, hip hop, politics, visual art and photography, and bursting with articles, poetry and personal narratives authored by a winning team of entertainment journalists, artists, and social critics. In the archives of TRIBES, greats like Damian Marley, India.Arie, Tyler Perry, KRS One, and so many more have featured. Still, the heart of TRIBES magazine is always with the self-sustaining arts. TRIBES is ever-committed to showcasing the countless lessor known (but no less prolific) independent artists as they pioneer expression and make essential noise in their communities.
