[This post has been updated] Canada's History magazine won three times in the third annual "Maggie" awards which wrapped up the annual conference of the Manitoba Magazine Publishers Association. The history title, published by Canada's National History Society in Winnipeg won as consumer magazine of the year, for best editorial package for its feature "Shell Shock" and best non-fiction feature for the article "Isolation", by Cec Rosner.

In addition to the 16 magazine categories, three student awards were presented for the Red River College creative communications program's annual magazine project competition. The student competition is adjudicated by the MMPA and the best project gets $1,000.
All other awards are made by a jury that included Stephen Benstead, novelist and bookseller; Judith Kearns, chair of the Department of Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications at the University of Winnipeg; David Roberts, non-fiction writer and a juried artist and illustrator; and Jill Wilson, editor of the Winnipeg Free PressTab and Detour sections.
