TOOT, TOOT! That’s Cana­dian Geo­graphic’s prover­bial horn toot­ing it­self — and with good rea­son. This past June, around the time we be­gan work­ing on this is­sue, the mag­a­zine re­ceived an hon­ourable men­tion for mag­a­zine of the year at the Na­tional Mag­a­zine Awards. As you can imag­ine, our team is proud of the ac­com­plish­ment and hon­oured to have been nom­i­nated. The recog­ni­tion didn’t end there, how­ever. Work we pub­lished in 2015 earned three other NMA hon­ourable men­tions: the Sum­mer 2015 is­sue of Cana­dian Geo­graphic Travel (ded­i­cated to Man­i­toba) in the ed­i­to­rial pack­age cat­e­gory; Paul Colan­gelo in the pho­to­jour­nal­ism and photo es­say cat­e­gory for his im­ages of Wood Buf­falo Na­tional Park in July/ Au­gust 2015 ( above); and Jac­qui Oak­ley in the spot il­lus­tra­tion cat­e­gory for her stun­ning in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Inuit throat singer Tanya Ta­gaq in April 2015. Those weren’t the only hon­ours the mag­a­zine col­lected from its 2015 is­sues, either. The Jan­uary/fe­bru­ary 2015 is­sue — boast­ing a dra­matic im­age of a wolf pho­tographed by the renowned John E. Mar­riott — gar­nered gold in the gen­eral in­ter­est cat­e­gory of the most re­cent Cana­dian Cover Awards. All told, it’s di­verse recog­ni­tion of the in­flu­ence and im­por­tance of the con­tent we pro­duce — cre­ated on your be­half and meant to res­onate most with you. Still, it’s nice to know our peers rec­og­nize this out­stand­ing work as much as our read­ers do. —Aaron Kylie
