Celebrating the Best of City and Regional Magazines


LOS ANGELES — Nineteen magazines took home awards at the 18th annual City and Regional Magazine Awards competition in Philadelphia at City and Regional Magazine Association’s Annual Conference. Judges from the University of Missouri-Columbia and journalism professionals from around the country selected 63 winning entries in 21 categories from the 794 submissions.
Winners were announced May 5, 2003, at the awards banquet, which was the climax of CRMA’s 27th Annual Conference. The competition is open to approximately 80 members of CRMA and other city and regional magazines that qualify.
Los Angeles and Texas Monthly magazines were the big winners this year. Los Angeles won 12 and Texas Monthly won 11 individual awards in categories including excellence in writing, cover design and general excellence. Atlanta magazine and Boston magazine followed with six awards each.
The general excellence awards are kept secret from magazines until the awards ceremony. For magazines with a circulation less than 30,000, Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine took the gold award; Cincinnati magazine won the silver; and Richmond magazine received the bronze.
For magazines with a circulation of 30,000 to 60,000, D Magazine grabbed the gold; Las Vegas Life took home the silver; and Milwaukee magazine won the bronze.
Of magazines with a circulation of 60,000 or more, Texas Monthly received the gold; Los Angeles magazine took the silver; and Boston magazine won the bronze.
