Magazine Won 2016 ‘Maggie’ for ‘Best Editorial Layout’

It’s always great to hear when our readers in the North Sound like what we’re doing here at Bellingham Alive, and other publications like Couture Weddings and NSL Guestbook. It’s also nice to get a pat on the back from people who don’t know us. That’s what happened in March 2016 when it was announced we won the 2016 Maggie Award for “Best Editorial Layout” in the under-75,000 circulation consumer magazine category. The winning layout was for the June 2015 “Sea to Storefront” spread. (Check it out on p. 69.) It was a nice feather in our cap, because the Maggies have been around awhile. They’ve been awarded annually for the past 66 years by the Western Publishing Association, which services the 24 Western states. The contest receives more than 1,200 entries in multiple categories each year. It was the first time that K&L Media publications had won. We have been named one of six finalists in three other categories: 2016’s “Best City & Metropolitan Consumer Publication,” and “Best Visitor’s Guide” for North Sound Life GuestBook; and 2014’s “Best Feature Article” for a Ken Karlberg story. As we celebrate our 10th year, we hope there will be more awards to come in the next 10. — MJB
