Award-winning design. Fresh stories. Extraordinary Perspective. Maine's City Magazine since 1985.
Portland Monthly Magazine was established in 1985 by Colin and Nancy Sargent. Since its inception, Portland Monthly Magazine has been the winner of numerous awards and honors. In October 2016, we received six prizes at the American Graphic Design USA Awards in Manhattan for the 10th consecutive year, bringing the total number of awards from American Graphic Design USA to 65.
We celebrate the region’s native appeal with revealing, highly detailed stories on fascinating personalties; unbiased reviews; cuisine news in our acclaimed Hungry Eye pages; and our signature interviews. Not monetized, not compromised, and created for our readers over everything else, our stories dare to be different and dare to provoke. Portland, Maine deserves nothing less.
