Wave Nominated for Major Magazine Awards

Wave, the Winnipeg Health Region's wellness magazine, has been named one of the top three publications in the province by the Manitoba Magazine Publishers' Association.

The magazine was one of three nominated for Magazine of the Year at a dinner sponsored by the association on April 29. Wave also picked up two nominations for Best Editorial Package.

The awards, known as the Maggies, celebrate excellence in magazine publishing in Manitoba. This year's competition attracted 120 entries in 16 categories from 40 publications.

Canada's History Magazine, formerly known as The Beaver, and Border Crossings were also nominated in the best magazine category, with Border Crossings winning the award.

"It is an honour to be nominated for Magazine of the Year along with two national publications such as Canada's History Magazine and Border Crossings, especially since we are in our first year of publication," said Michele Augert, Regional Director of Communications and Public Affairs for the Winnipeg Health Region. "It underscores the fact that we are producing a quality publication that all Manitobans can be proud of."'

In addition to Magazine of the Year, Wave received Best Editorial Package nominations for stories on prostate cancer and sleeping disorders.

Wave, which first hit the streets in May 2009, is published six times a year through a partnership between the Winnipeg Health Region and the Winnipeg Free Press.

"Our goal in publishing Wave is really quite simple," said Augert. "We want to engage readers in the thing that matters to them most - their health and well-being. We do that by providing readers with actionable information that can help them make better lifestyle choices, and we also do it by publishing stories that show how the health-care system works and how people can access the services that are available."

The magazine is available at newsstands, hospitals and clinics throughout Winnipeg, as well as McNally Robinson Books and the Winnipeg Free Press.
