Maisonneuve is very pleased to announce that we've won Magazine of the Year. Last night at the National Magazine Awards, which took place in Toronto at the Carlu, Maisonneuve received Canada's most prestigious magazine prize for the second time in our ten-year history. (We previously won Magazine of the Year in 2004.) Hearty congratulations to the other nominees for Magazine of the Year, Outdoor Canada and Sportsnet, and to all the evening's winners and nominees. Special congratulations to our friends at the Walrus, who went home with six Golds and six Silvers.
Maisonneuve art director Anna Minzhulina also received Silver in Art Direction for a Single Magazine Article for "Monuments: The City in Three Parts" (Issue 39).
Here's what the judges had to say about our Magazine of the Year win:
A broad-minded, insatiable magazine that publishes investigative journalism, long-form essays and breathtaking artwork, Maisonneuve strives to support emerging talent and present the arts and ideas of Quebec to Anglophone Canada. 2011 saw the magazine publish several high-profile investigative pieces and photo essays, and it was rewarded with nine National Magazine Award nominations.
We also received seven Honourable Mentions:
"Getting Plowed" (Issue 42—Winter 2011)
One of a Kind
"They Never Told Us These Things" (Issue 40—Summer 2011)
"We Will Not Leave This Place" (Issue 42—Winter 2011)
Politics & Public Interest
"Our Tar-Sands Man in Washington" (Issue 42—Winter 2011)
