The awards were presented Sunday night at the organization's annual conference, held this year in Scottsdale, Arizona. IRMA is largely made up of U.S. titles such as Texas Highways, Adirondack Life, Arizona Highways and New Mexico magazine, titles which provide a focus on a particular region on which they are focussed. Four out of the five attending Canadian members took prizes, a quarter of those awarded.
