Magazines Canada broaden Best on Page to include awards
Building on the popular Best on Page show of international magazine creative, Magazines Canada is launching an awards program of the same name. The awards will be held in Toronto on April 8 and will recognize the best magazine advertising creative in Canada.
Voting for the contest will take place online

The submission process for the competition is completely web based, says executive director of advertising Gary Garland. “It was launched to give magazine work the recognition it deserves,” he says. “We felt there was an opportunity because magazine advertising doesn’t have its own program. The Best on Page show has always been very popular, with over 800 attendees. So to capitalize on that kind of program bodes well.”

Marketing magazine and Marketing QC are the media sponsors along with the help of the Ontario Media Development Corporation, says Garland. “It will be a great show,” he says. “We are playing off the theme of battle of the pages and there will be entertainment that builds off that.”

Gold awards will be handed out in five categories:
•    Best Full Page or Double Page Spread
•    Best Fractional or Small Space Ad
•    Best Campaign
•    Most Innovative Use of the Medium
•    Best of Show
