Canadian Newsstand Awards offers new categories, bigger prizes
The annual Canadian Newsstand Awards/Grand prix d'excellence en kiosque has reached its 10th anniversary, and some big changes are being made to mark the milestone. 
This year the awards program offers an all-new category system, higher prize credits and a new consumer-focused winners' promotion program. 
The new categories, based on subject matter and not circulation as in previous years, include:
Women's Service
Fashion, Shopping and Bridal
News, Business and Celebrity
Home and Decor
Sports and Leisure
Family and Kids
General Interest, Arts, Lifestyle and Regional
SIPs and New Magazine. 
The Canadian Newsstand Awards/Grand prix d’excellence en kiosque will honour outstanding achievement in single-copy sales and cover design for English and French-language Canadian magazines published in 2010. The Awards also honour the Newsstand Marketer of the Year.
Each category will have a Silver and Gold winner, and Gold winners receive a $3,000 credit towards newsstand promotions at HDS Retail. In total there is $24,000 in available credits, a 33% increase from last year. 
While some changes have been introduced, the competition maintains a judging system with 50% of the total scores based on sales percentages, and the other 50% based on creative criteria.
Entries are now open, with the early-bird deadline Friday, June 17 and the final deadline Friday, July 8. The awards event will take place in fall 2011.
The Canadian Newsstand Awards are sponsored by HDS Retail, CMC Circulation Management Association of Canada, Audit Bureau of Circulations and produced by Masthead.
