British Columbia Magazines nominated for the 43rd Annual National Magazine Awards

For the first time since its debut in 1977, the National Magazine Awards will be held as a virtual broadcast through our digital channels. Creators, storytellers, editors, publishers, and all magazine stakeholders from coast to coast to coast are invited to join the live, interactive Winners Celebration on Facebook, which will be hosted by award-winning writer, editor, content strategist and journalism instructor, Sandra Martin.

The four Best Magazine Awards honour the magazines that most consistently engage, surprise and serve the needs of their readers.
