The Alberta Magazine Awards recognizes, supports and celebrates outstanding magazine content in our province. The annual awards program honours the best in the industry and gives the region's magazine professionals a chance to commend the work of their colleagues. The opportunity to celebrate achievement within our community both strengthens and inspires us to further excellence.
The 2014 Alberta Magazine Awards will be presented at a gala dinner that kicks-off the Alberta Magazines Conference on March 20, 2014 at the Carriage House Inn, Calgary.
