Photo gallery: National Magazine Awards

An exhausting week for magaziners ended in style Friday night with the National Magazine Awards gala at The Carlu in downtown Toronto. Writer, editor and teacher Charles Oberdorf received his Outstanding Achievement Award with grace, while Toronto Life was named Magazine of the Year, a fitting tribute to former editor John Macfarlane, who retired in December.

The Walrus once again led all winners with six gold and four silver (from 37 nominations). Special kudos to Québec Science, a magazine with circ just under 20,000, that took home both a gold and silver award, If you haven't already viewed the full results, they're here. We expect the NMA Foundation will post a ton of photos from the event soon, but in the meantime, here are some pics snapped by Masthead publisher Doug Bennet. 

John Macfarlane with gold-winning freelancer John Lorinc.
 New York magazine's Adam Sternberg, who did a fine job as host, with gold-winning writer Cynthia Brouse.
Derek Webster, editor of Maisonneuve (winners of two gold and silver on the night), with Terry Sellwood of Quarto Communication, Melanie Rutledge* (an earlier version misidentified Rutledge) from the Canada Council and Magazines Canada president and CEO Mark Jamison.
Illustrator Pierre Lamielle and Shelley Youngblut, editor of Swerve.
Bonnie Summerfeldt, art director of Canadian Gardening with Gary Davidson, art director of explore (a magazine that won two gold and five silver awards).
Linda Lewis, editor of More magazine (winners of two gold, one silver and unofficial winner of the Loudest Cheering award at the ceremony), with Vanessa Craft, More's beauty editor.
