Promotion is the key for magazines that win in newspaper competition

Newspapers, daily and community, often carry or create supplements or other things presented in magazine form. Often they are purely advertorial, such as tourism promotions, or focus on fashion and bridal; very occasionally they are magazines that could stand on their own. 
Newspapers Canada runs a competition called Great Ideas, which selects " the most creative and innovative examples of newspaper marketing and promotion from daily and community publications across the country." It's interesting to see what were considered this year's winners in the Magazine category.
