“These awards are a testament to the hard work and talents of our gifted contributors,” said editor and co-publisher John Macfarlane. “We are fortunate to able to create a truly national magazine featuring their writing, photography, art, and illustration, and we’re grateful for the recognition that the National Magazine Awards bring to our collective work. The staff and contributors who won or were nominated tonight are essential to us in our efforts to create and support the Canadian conversation, and we’re truly proud.”

The Walrus magazine came into the awards having received more nominations than any other publication for the sixth straight year.
