Kim Pittaway to receive 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award at the national mag awards

Pleased to see that Kim Pittaway is to receive the 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award from the National Magazine Awards Foundation. She earned it, as a journalist, editor, teacher and mentor. One of her nominators, Joyce Byrne, the publisher of Avenue Calgary and the current president of the NMAF said
As a mentor, Kim has inspired my own path in magazine publishing with simple advice: Get involved, volunteer, mentor a young person, have an opinion, lead an organization.
Pittaway, who was managing editor, then editor, of Chatelaine as well as a prolific freelance magazine writer, now lives in Nova Scotia and is a faculty member of the journalism and MFA programs at King's College in Halifax.

This award, recognizing career excellence and service to the Canadian magazine industry, is the highest honour that the NMAs make and Kim joins a select company of recipients (blush, including me). It will be presented at the awards gala on June 10 in Toronto.
