Elle leads Canadian Cover Awards finalists with three nods [*Updated]
[*UPDATE: The Canadian Cover Awards has issued several corrections to its list of finalists, following an internal review of eligibility. According to Magazines Canada, sales figures for several entries weren't final.]

The Canadian Cover Awards finalists have been announced and the winners, including the Newsstand of the Year recipient, will be unveiled at an awards reception Feb. 26 at the Courtyard Toronto Downtown.

TC Media's Elle brand is a sure winner in the Fashion, Shopping and Bridal category. Two Elle Canada covers, for its November 2011 and April 2012 issues, are in the running. Elle Quebec's August 2012 cover rounds out the category.

Other multiple-nominees include Canadian House and Home, which has two covers competing in Home and Decor; Chatelaine, with two nods in the Women's Service category; and Legion Magazine, nominated in General Interest, Arts, Lifestyle and Regional, and also SIPs and New Magazines.
