The top award in Canadian business publishing went to University Affairs magazine, named Magazine of the Year in the professional category of the Kenneth R. Wilson Awards held in Toronto yesterday evening. The magazine took home two other gold awards — for best professional article and for best art direction of a feature — as well as a silver award for best issue.

The two latter gold awards were given to writer Moira MacDonald for her feature “How to teach math” in the June-July 2014 issue, and to Toronto design firm Underline Studio for their design of the feature “Heavy metal microbes” in the February 2014 issue. The silver award was in recognition of the November 2014 issue of UA, which featured on the cover our report “Ending sexual violence on campus.” That article also received honorable mentions in two categories, best news coverage and best feature article. In all, UA received 10 nominations this year in various categories.

“We’re thrilled and honoured to be judged so highly by our peers in the business magazine industry,” said UA editor Peggy Berkowitz. “Our excellent showing reflects the talent and dedication of the entire team, including our art directors at Underline Studio and the many freelancers who contribute to the magazine. As well, we benefit immeasurably from the strong support of Universities Canada (publisher of UA), and from the unusual amount of editorial freedom we enjoy for an association magazine.”
