Yankee Magazine Named 2014 National City and Regional Magazine Awards Finalist
Dublin, New Hampshire (March 7, 2014)— Yankee Magazine is a 2014 National City and Regional Magazine Awards finalist for “Photography” and “Excellence in Writing.” Magazine professionals from around the country chose 150 finalists representing 34 publications in the 29-year-old City and Regional Magazine Association’s national awards competition. Judges named five finalists in most categories and will soon choose one ultimate winner in each. The winners for work completed in 2013 will be announced at the 38th Annual Conference to take place May 17-19 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC.
“For the third time in the past five years Yankee has been named a finalist for ‘Excellence in Writing’ for its March/April issue,” says Mel Allen, editor of Yankee Magazine. “That issue, with the theme ‘Power of Place’ is one of my favorite issues I have worked on in my nearly 35 years at Yankee. Also for the third time in the past five years Yankee was once again recognized for photo excellence. Richard Schultz’s ‘In the Shadow of Mount Washington’ in the July/August issue gave a fresh look at such well known icons as the Mount Washington Hotel and the Cog Railway. To be recognized for our efforts by the judges who work at such well-respected national publications and by the journalism professors from the Missouri School of Journalism, is truly gratifying,” says Mel Allen, editor of Yankee Magazine. “The editors who work with me deserve all the credit for quality of the work that the CRMA has deemed among the finest in the country.”
Yankee Magazine is competing in the following categories based on these criteria:
“In the Shadow of Mount Washington,” photographed by Richard Schultz; text by Mel Allen (Yankee Magazine July/August 2013, page 76) is a finalist for “Photography.” Entries for this category are evaluated on how the photographs rather than words tell a story and exhibit a conceptual approach to the subject. In this photo essay, Schultz captures the valley’s spectacular beauty and the faces of the people who call it home. Other finalists include: Boston Magazine “Home Team Workouts”; Chicago Magazine “In the Shadow of the Gun”; Down East: The Magazine of Maine “Cowgirl”; and Texas Monthly “At War’s End.”
