Alberta announces $650,000 funding increase for province's magazines

The Alberta government has announced funding boost for Alberta’s magazine publishers of $219,000 a year over the next four years. According to a post in  the Edmonton Journal, culture and tourism minister Ricardo Miranda said the funding — which increases annual support for the sector to $650,000 — will help grow a sustainable magazine publishing industry in Alberta.
“Alberta magazines are experiencing a renaissance and provide readers with unique literary and visual experiences,” he said. “I encourage all Albertans to pick up an Alberta magazine to explore new ideas.”
Joyce Byrne, president of the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association, said the cash will help boost capacity and broaden the impact of Alberta-grown magazines.

Alberta publishers produce nearly 200 titles annually, delivering 18 million copies to readers each year.
