We are happy to report that Maisonneuve was named Magazine of the Year at the 39th National Magazine Awards on Friday, June 10. It was the third time in the magazine's history that we have received the top honour, with previous wins in 2012 and 2004.
Here is what the jury had to say:
Maisonneuve fulfills its bold mandate of “banishing boring,” clearly striving to engage, inform and inspire. From its refreshing and imaginative art direction to its passionate editorial voice, the magazine feels like its constantly evolving, yet at the same time seems to connect with a sense of familiarity with its readers.
In total, Maisonneuve took home four gold and one silver awards, coming second only to the Walrus in the total medal count:
Marta Iwanek won Best New Photographer for "The Maidan." She also received a gold for the same piece in Photojournalism & Photo Essay.
Alison Motluk won gold in Health & Medicine for "Worth the Risk?"
And finally, Anna Minzhulina, Haley Cullingham and Ian Patterson won silver in Magazine Covers for our Summer 2015 issue.
