The Western Magazine Awards have been cancelled
The Western Magazine Awards Foundation has announced that the 2015 edition of its awards competition has been cancelled. Reasons for the cancellation include industry budget tightening and low attendance at past galas. They were also setback by the Canadian Heritage ministry’s decision to cease funding all “initiatives to recognize and/or reward” Canadian magazines through the Canadian Periodical Fund.

Visit the Western Magazine Awards website for the full statement and to participate in a survey, in which they hope to gather ideas regarding the future of the awards. The survey must be completed by September 30.
