Calgary (June 26, 2020) – RedPoint Media & Marketing Solutions was honoured at last night’s Alberta Magazine Publishers Association online award celebration with a total of five awards for Avenue Calgary including Alberta Magazine of the Year, two awards for WestJet Magazine and one for Leap. Across these three RedPoint publications, the company had been shortlisted for 29 awards in almost every category of this year’s Alberta Magazine Awards.

In addition to being named Alberta Magazine of the Year, Avenue Calgary received a silver award in the Alberta Story category for “Looking Toward the Future of Stampede” by Taylor Lambert, and a silver for Service Journalism for “Urban Survival Guide.” In the design and art categories Avenue received a silver for Cover for the Avenue 2019 Best Neighbourhoods issue. And former Avenue intern Stephanie Joe took home the silver award for Emerging Writer for work she did with the magazine.

The WestJet Magazine team took home gold in the Cover category for the July 2019 issue, and gold for Illustration for Cristian Fowlie’s work on “To the Moon” for the same issue.

The Leap magazine team received a silver for Illustration for Peter Ryan’s work for “Practicing Compassion.”

RedPoint staff photographer Jared Sych received three honourable mentions for his work in both WestJet Magazine and Avenue Calgary.

Avenue Calgary’s sister publication, Avenue Edmonton, was also among the night’s big winners with six awards include gold awards for Photograph: People and Portraiture and Feature Writing Short.

“This year marks Avenue’s 25th year in publication, so in some ways there could be no better time to receive the honour of being named Alberta Magazine of the Year,” said Pete Graves, President and CEO of RedPoint Media & Marketing Solutions. “While our publications and the communities they celebrate face many hurdles right now, these awards recognize our commitment to quality and to our clients’ ongoing success.”

Avenue Calgary editor-in-chief Käthe Lemon said: “We were truly honoured to have our work recognized by AMPA and we also want to congratulate all the other winners. Together we can grow the eco-system of strong local storytelling and publishing.”
