[OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE of National City and Regional Magazine Association:]

CRMA Announces 2007 National City And Regional Magazine Awards Finalists

Los Angeles magazine leads the list with 12 nominations.

Magazine professionals from around the country chose 82 finalists from more than 950 entries – the most in CRMA's history – in the 22nd Annual National City and Regional Magazine Association's annual awards contest.

Eighty magazines of varying circulation competed, and 24 publications secured nominations in 22 editorial and design categories and three new categories honoring ancillary publications, community service and multi-media extensions. The gold, silver and bronze winners will be announced at the CRMA 31st Annual Conference May 5-7 at the Grand Hyatt Denver in Denver, Colo.

Topping the 2007 list is Los Angeles magazine with 12 nominations. Texas Monthly received 11. Philadelphia magazine is a finalist in seven categories, Mpls.St. Paul in six and Chicago five. Boston, Cincinnati and The Washingtonian each received four, while 5280 (Denver), Berkshire Living, D (Dallas), Indianapolis Monthly and St. Louis magazines each captured three.

A number of smaller circulation titles also garnered nominations. Those include Diablo, Evansville Living and Honolulu (with two each), Madison, New Orleans, Palm Springs, Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine and others.

This year’s editorial nominees covered such topics as the fight U.S. military reservists face in reclaiming their civilian jobs in Colorado, the aftermath of the murder of five Amish schoolgirls in rural Pennsylvania, why lead is still poisoning the children of Washington D.C., how public schools succeed and fail in Minneapolis and St. Paul, the story of how a Chicago area father falsely confessed to the murder of his daughter. Other topics included how immigrants are changing Indianapolis, how the Iraq war is affecting the people of Texas and reader service stories such as things every Las Vegan must do.

Seventy-three judges representing 35 publications, including Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, O, The Oprah Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Better Homes and Gardens, Men’s Journal, Essence, Gourmet, National Geographic, Bon Appétit, Marie Claire, The New York Times, ESPN The Magazine, Glamour, The Washington Post, Marie Claire, Gourmet and journalism scholars from the Missouri School of Journalism selected the finalists.

The competition is open to almost 100 members of CRMA and other non-member city and regional magazines throughout North America that qualify. The contest is a 22-year-old national competition and has been coordinated by the University of Missouri School of Journalism on behalf of CRMA for the past 11 years.
