While we’re still hard at work putting together a magazine that holds powers to account, makes you think, and introduces you to some amazing Canadians, we thought we’d take a brief moment to toot our own horn and celebrate our amazing contributors. We are incredibly thrilled to let you know that This has been nominated for three National Magazine Awards this year!
For her piece “American dream versus Russian Doll” in our July/August 2016 issue (which was also our annual Summer Reading Issue!), Helen Guri is nominated in the Poetry category.
For her illustration accompanying “Fly Away, Little Bird” by Nadia Alam in our May/June 2016 issue, Jori van der Linde is nominated for Best Illustration.
And finally, we’ve received a nomination for Best Cover for our November/December 2016 Tiger Beat-esque Justin Trudeau cover. Congratulations to former editor Lauren McKeon and art director Valerie Thai for their work on this issue.
Each year, the National Magazine Awards celebrates the work of Canadian journalists and the magazines writers, artists, and editors work hard to create. We are excited to be nominated among other small magazines, including Geist, Ryerson Review of Journalism, Maisonneuve, and more.
