No Quebec Magazine Awards this year

header7104The Quebec magazine association–l’Association québecoise des éditeurs de magazines (AQEM)–has announced that it will not be hosting the Quebec Magazine Awards (aka Grands Prix du magazine) this year.

An announcement on the association’s website noted that its board of directors is focusing its efforts on urgent advocacy issues. It stated that the awards will return in 2014 and be open to work published either in 2012 or in 2013:

Votre association concentre toutes ses énergies à défendre vos intérêts dans le dossier du recyclage du papier et des tarifs exorbitants auxquels nous faisons face. Le Conseil d’administration a donc décidé que Les Grands Prix du magazine 2013 de l’Association québecoise des éditeurs de magazines (AQEM) ne seront pas décernés cette année mais seulement au printemps 2014. La compétition portera alors sur les éditions de 2012 et 2013.

The annual Grands Prix du magazine have been held each year since 1991. Last year’s winners included Les Débrouillards and L’actualité, which shared the award for Quebec Magazine of the Year. Other winners were JobboomQuébec Science, Protégez-Vous, Châtelaine, Elle Québec, 7 jours and Clin d’œil.
