Aspen Journalism is a nonprofit journalism organization based in Aspen, Colorado. Our mission is to produce investigative and in-depth journalism for those with a stake in the Aspen region, by virtue of their living, voting, owning, working, recreating, or visiting here.

Our area of geographic concern radiates outward from Aspen to include Pitkin, Eagle and Garfield counties, the Roaring Fork Valley, the Roaring Fork River watershed, the Western Slope, the state of Colorado, and the upper Colorado River basin.

We believe well-informed citizens make better decisions, that good journalism can sustain both community and democracy, that investigative reporting can spur needed reform, and that well-written stories are an efficient and effective way to reach engaged citizens.

Since our founding in 2011, Aspen Journalism has collaborated with many other local and regional news organizations, including The Aspen Times, Glenwood Springs Post Independent, Vail Daily, Summit Daily, Steamboat Pilot & Today, Sky-Hi News, Craig Press, Aspen Public Radio, KDNK, Sojourner magazine, Aspen Daily News, KUNC, High Country News, the Colorado Sun, and The Denver Post.

Aspen Journalism is a member the Colorado Press Association, the Institute for Nonprofit News, and the News Revenue Hub.

Over the past two years, our work (including our reporting, sustained beat coverage, photography and data-presentation), has been recognized with six awards from the Colorado Press Association, 11 awards from the Society of Professional Journalists’s Top of the Rockies contest, and one national award for investigative reporting from SPJ’s Sigma Delta Chi contest.

Our newsroom is in Aspen, in the Benedict Building at 1280 Ute Avenue, Suite 9. (It’s got a mail slot in the door, which it makes easy to drop off documents).

We welcome comments, suggestions and questions via phone at (303) 877-7729 and via email at (first name of staffer)
