Last week, the best and brightest in our province’s magazine industry were feted at the 2016 Alberta Magazine Awards.
Avenue Edmonton picked up two gold awards and four silver awards. We were nominated a total of 16 times, including a nomination for Magazine of the Year. It marked the third time in a row that Avenue Edmonton was shortlisted for our province’s Stanley Cup of magazine publishing — the only magazine in Alberta that can lay claim to that distinction.
As the editor of the magazine, I get to work with a talented collection of writers, illustrators, photographers and editors. And, while the awards are important, the best accolades are the ones we receive from our readers. You are our most important critics. You are the reason we do what we do.
Here is a list of our winners:
The photography team of Cooper + O’Hara took gold in the Photography: Landscape, Still Life and Architecture Category for “Where Winter Finds You Swell”
Avenue Associate Editor Cory Haller’s wonderful “Santa Schooled” bested a tight field in the Feature Writing: Long category.
Omar Mouallem’s “Where Are the Women Chefs?” took silver in the Feature Writing: Short category.
Daniel Wood’s cover shot of Premier Rachel Notley took the silver in Photograph: People and Portraiture.
And Caroline Barlott got a silver-award plaque in the Service: Lifestyle category for “Consider the Weeds.”
