Paul Wilson Sweeps Entire Category and Other Winners at the National Magazine Awards
Two different feature articles for The Walrus by CWG’s Paul Wilson netted him Gold and Silver awards in the One-of-A-Kind category at the National Magazine Awards in Toronto on June 7. “Adrift on the Nile,” a report from Egypt on the so-called “Arab spring”, as well as “The Archivist,” a look at Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s journalism, which was largely researched during a trip Paul took to Sweden. Two other CWG writers won gold (Katherine Ashenburg, “The Long Goodbye”) and silver (Chris Turner, “The Farms are Not Alright”) for Walrus stories in the Society category. Congratulations also go out to Don Gillmor, who won gold in the Arts and Entertainment category for “All In” (18 Bridges), as well as Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall for “Mostly Awesome, with Brief Periods of Terrible” for explore (Silver, Sports & Recreation) and David Eddie for “It Takes Balls” for Canadian Family (Silver, Service: Health and Family).
