Geez garners tops awards at church convention

Geez magazine won major awards at the Canadian Church Press convention in Cambridge, Ontario early in May 2008.

We received six first-place honours for magazines (best cover, origninal artwork, non-fiction article, opinion piece, letters and first place for “general excellence”), two seconds (feature article and poetry), and two honourable mentions (personal experience article and Experiments section)

Here at Geez we straddle the boundary between the church world and the regular world. Hence we appreciate these honours from the church press. At the same time we also (vainly?) seek recognition from the regular magazine world, which we got last year at Canada’s Western Magazine Awards (see story here). - Aiden Enns, publisher, Geez magazine
