The Inaugural Canadian Magazine Awards / Grands prix du magazine

On April 27, 2017, Canada’s magazine publishing community came together to celebrate the very best in Canadian magazine journalism and design at the first Magazine Grands Prix fête.

The inaugural Magazine Grands Prix awards fête was held in conjunction with MagNet: Canada’s Magazine Conference, the premier event for Canada’s magazine media. The awards presentation was hosted by esteemed journalist Sophie Durocher, with opening remarks from Candy Palmater, broadcaster, writer, comedian and film and TV producer. The inaugural awards were open to work published in a Canadian magazine in 2016. The finalists reflected the sector’s range and excellence with nominations from Canadian magazines large and small; niche, specialty and general interest; local, regional and national. The 2017 Magazine Grands Prix featured 13 awards for individual creators and 12 for magazines which honour creative and editorial vision and execution.
