The Circulation Management Association of Canada (CMC) and Magazines Canada have announced the winners of the Canadian Cover Awards/Grands prix canadiens – Meilleures couvertures, which were presented at an awards reception in Toronto on 26 February.
The Canadian Cover Awards recognise and celebrate the success and importance of magazine covers in Canadian single copy sales. Canadian magazine titles were invited to submit top-selling covers for consideration in seven award categories. Entries were open to issues sold in the 2011 calendar year or early 2012 with final newsstand sales.
Newsstand sales were worth 50 per cent of a title’s final score, the remaining 50 per cent determined by a panel of judges that included a retailer, a wholesaler, a national distributor and a circulation director.
