About the Canadian Cover Awards
Grands prix canadiens - Meilleures couvertures
NO LONGER ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS
The Canadian Cover Awards/Grands prix canadiens - Meilleures couvertures recognize and celebrate the success of our industry’s top selling magazine covers. Honours go to titles with sizzling sell lines, compelling photography, clever illustrations—whatever made the consumer pick up and purchase that magazine. In a retail environment where Canadian magazines have to fight for every inch of shelf space they can get, these awards recognize that it’s not size that matters—it’s covers!
The 2012 Cover Awards producers, CMC and Magazines Canada, are building on the successful awards first launched in 2002 by Masthead, now the generous media sponsor. Also new for the 2013 awards is a streamlined and convenient online entry submission process. This year, the more you enter, the cheaper it gets–so enter your cover as many times as you want to increase your chances of winning.Check your eligibility for the exciting new Canadian Cover Awards. There are EIGHT different award categories that your cover can be entered into to win! Newsstand sales are worth 50 percent of the final score; the remaining 50 percent of the score will be determined by five judges representing our industry: a retailer, a wholesaler, a national distributor, a circulation director and an art director.
And don't forget the Newsstand Marketer of the Year award. This prestigious prize goes to an individual who showed true innovation and passion through a successful newsstand marketing project.
