Columbus Monthly, Seattle Met, and Denver’s 5280 earned top prizes for General Excellence at the 33rd annual City & Regional Magazine Awards, administered by the University of Missouri School of Journalism and announced Monday at the City & Regional Mag Association’s annual meetup in New Orleans.
Twenty-five year-old 5280 and 12 year-old Seattle Met were first-time winners in the General Excellence category, which is split into three prizes based on circulation level. Columbus Monthly, which won among magazines with a circulation of 30,000 or less, had previously won a General Excellence award under a different format in 2001. All three were finalists in their respective categories last year.
5280 earned awards in four additional categories, including Feature Story for Robert Sanchez’s “Lost and Found.”
Texas Monthly was the day’s other big winner, also earning five total awards—including overall Excellence in Writing for its August 2017 issue and best reporting for Ryan Goldberg’s “The Drug Runners“—despite some commotion behind the scenes at the 45 year-old title. Texas Monthly was also last year’s big winner, taking home seven awards in 2017.
