Canadian Notes & Queries is very proud to announce that this year’s Gold Medal for Fiction at the National Magazine Awards went to Caroline Adderson for her story “Ellen-Celine, Celine-Ellen,” published in issue 86. The Silver Medal went to Patrick deWitt for “The Looking-Ahead Artist,” published in Brick; Lynn Coady also received honourable mention for “Dogs in Clothes” (Canadian Notes & Queries 85). CNQ was the only magazine to be recognized twice in the fiction category, while Caroline Adderson (who received further honourable mention for “I Feel Lousy,” published in Eighteen Bridges) was the only twice-recognized story writer.
The National Magazine Awards Foundation is a bilingual, not-for-profit institution whose mission is to recognize and promote excellence in the content and creation of Canadian print and digital publications through an annual program of awards and national publicity efforts. It presented the awards for its 36th annual celebration at a gala in Toronto at The Carlu, hosted by Canadian actor Zaib Shaikh. Gold, Silver, and Honourable Mention awards were presented in 47 categories. This year the judges received over 2000 submissions from nearly 200 Canadian consumer magazines.
On behalf of Canadian Notes & Queries we would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all award recipients. For subscription rates and information about the magazine please contact Tara Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
