The Alberta Magazine Publishers Association has yet again nominated The Yards for its magazine work. The organization has nominated two of our writing contributors, Bashir Mohamed and Dustin Bajer, for its 2019 awards, which recognize excellence in magazine writing, photography, design, editorial thought and creativity.
You can read Mohamed’s nominated story, Finding Lulu, here; you can read Bajer’s nominated story, Family Trees, here.
This year’s nominations continue a long tradition of The Yards being recognized by AMPA for excellence in magazining. Despite our small size and budgets, our hyper-local nature and dedication to community journalism have allowed The Yards to produce a magazine that shines. In 2017, we won several AMPA awards. Last year, we received two nominations for our writing work as well.
We want to thank all our readers, advertisers and supporters, and we wish our two contributors the best of luck.
