won three honours at the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors
(CSME) Awards at the MagNet conference in Toronto June 8.
Outdoor Canada was named best for mid-size consumer magazine, display writing (Jim Cormier Award) and editor of the year. Outdoor's editor Patrick Walsh fought back tears accepting the Jim Cormier honour. "Jim was a friend of mine, in a lot of ways this means more than magazine of the year," he said.
