The awards were given out on Friday at the Renaissance Vancover Hotel Harbourside.
Shelley Youngblut, editor of the Calgary weekly Swerve, was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
"I have always been a magazine person," Youngblut said upon acceptance of her award.
"Thank you to the Calgary Herald, which has enabled the Swerve team to present an original, heartfelt, smart, funny, unpredictable, relentlessly local magazine every week for the past five years. It's weird and wonderful to be its editor."
Calgary writer Chris Koentges won two more writing awards for a memoir of his mother Helen published in Swerve last year. The piece also won Koentges two golds at this year's National Magazine Awards.
