For the first time in its 56-year history, the 2010 Kenneth R. Wilson Awards, celebrating bilingual excellence in Canada's business press, will be recognizing magazine of the year. Four new internet categories have been introduced and an award for Best One-of-a-Kind Article has been added.
The changes are part of an overhaul of every aspect of the awards, including judging procedures, as the awards are now co-produced by Canadian Business Press and Magazines Canada and managed by Barbara Gould & Associates which also manages the consumer-oriented National Magazine Awards.
A governing board
includes representatives from across the industry and is headed by co-chairs John W Kerr Jr. of Kerwill Publishing for CBP and John Milne of Rogers for Magazines Canada.
The submissions process for the 2010 KRW awards will commence on January 4, 2010.
There are 21 total categories under the divisions Writing, Visual, Internet and Special. Gold and Silver awards will be granted in each category. Gold awards carry a cash prize of $1000. Silver awards carry a cash prize of $500.
