Thirty magazines from a full range of Canadian publishers have been named finalists in the 10th annual Canadian Newsstand Awards/Grand prix d’excellence en kiosque.

Several independent titles have also been nominated, including Fly Fusion; Garden Making; Legion; Pools, Spas & Patios; Spacing, This Magazine and others. Scroll down to see the full list.

A new category system was introduced for the 10th anniversary, leading to a 13% increase in entries. The new category system is organized by subject matter instead of circulation size. A special category for the growing SIP sector (special-interest publications, exemplified by the Maclean’s Olympic issue) and new titles was also included.

Winners will be announced at a special reception Sept. 26 at the Spoke Club in Toronto starting at 5 p.m., held in conjunction with the CMC Circulation Management Association of Canada fall seminar and social.
