Canadian Newsstand Awards Finalists Announced

Posted by Scott On September - 9 - 2011

Thirty magazines have been named for a chance at glory, and $24,000 in prize money, at the 10th Annual Canadian Newsstand Awards, sponsored by LS Travel Retail (formerly HDS Retail).

The Canadian Newsstand Awards take into consideration both the artistic value of the covers and the empirical newsstand sales results.  This year, covers were judged by category/theme rather than by circulation levels, as they have been in the past.

Amongst that list, I am shamelessly proud to have four clients (with 5 covers) in the hunt.  Click on the images to enlarge them!
