We won a Newsstand Award! Thanks to all our readers and supporters

Graham F. Scott

We’re extremely pleased to tell you that This won last night at the Canadian Newsstand Awards in the small magazine category. This is actually the third year in a row we’ve won this particular award, which is given out annually to magazines that sell well on the newsstand. The issue that took the prize is our July-August 2008 issue, featuring a popular (and controversial) cover story on the NDP by James Laxer.

Lots of people deserve thanks for their work on the cover, and the issue, and for helping to get it into readers’ hands:

  • Publisher Lisa Whittington-Hill;
  • Editor Jessica Johnston;
  • Art director Dave Donald;
  • Cover story writer James Laxer;
  • Cover photo-illustrator Steve Murray;
  • Distributor Magazines Canada;
  • Distributor Disticor;
  • Printer Transcontinental;
  • and the sponsors of the awards, HDS Retail, Masthead, Circulation Management Association of Canada, and the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

And of course, thanks to you, our readers, for buying, reading, and supporting This Magazine.
