The City and Regional Magazine Association’s annual awards have been announced, and, as was the case last year, Texas Monthly and Los Angeles magazines dominated the awards field, winning a combined 14.
Last year, the pair won a combined 29.
Los Angeles, Hour Detroit and Memphis Magazine won general excellence awards in their respective circulation categories during the 24th annual competition.
Other multiple prize winners included 5280, Boston, Chicago and Cincinnati magazines, each taking home two awards. Seven magazines—D, Philadelphia, MPLS. St Paul, Westchester, Rhode Island Monthly, Memphis and Hour—each nabbed one.
Last month, Los Angeles’ longtime editor-in-chief Kit Rachlis,
who had held the magazine’s top editorial post since 2000, decided to
step down after the magazine published a controversial cover story that included an open letter calling
L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa a “failure.”
spokesperson said Rachlis’ departure was not related to the issue’s publication.
