June 9, 2014

TORONTO, ON – Rot­man Man­age­ment, the mag­a­zine of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toronto’s Rot­man School of Man­age­ment, has won a sil­ver medal in the ‘Best Sin­gle Issue’ cat­e­go­ry at the 2014 Nation­al Mag­a­zine Awards. The awards, which rec­og­nize excel­lence in Canada’s print and dig­i­tal pub­li­ca­tions, were announced at a gala in Toron­to last Fri­day evening.

Rot­man Man­age­ment was rec­og­nized for The Lega­cy Issue, pub­lished in Fall 2013 and fea­tur­ing arti­cles by Rot­man Asso­ciate Dean and Pro­fes­sor Ani­ta McGa­han, David Beat­ty and Matt Full­brook of the Rot­man School’s Clark­son Cen­tre for Busi­ness Ethics and Board Effec­tive­ness, Rot­man Prof. Richard Flori­da as well as con­tri­bu­tions by Har­vard Busi­ness School Pro­fes­sor Clay­ton Chris­tensen and the Darden’s School Prof. Jeanne Liedt­ka, among oth­ers. The issue’s Thought Leader Inter­view was with for­mer Rot­man Dean Roger Mar­tin, who had just stepped down from his 15-year tenure as Dean and inspired the issue’s theme.

The gold medal in the cat­e­go­ry was award­ed to The Wal­rus for its 10th anniver­sary issue pub­lished in Win­ter 2013. Oth­ers nom­i­nat­ed for Best Sin­gle Issue includ­ed Cot­tage Life (which went on to win Mag­a­zine of the Year), Toron­to Life and Azure.

The Awards are pre­sent­ed by the Nation­al Mag­a­zine Awards Foun­da­tion (NMAF), a not-for-prof­it insti­tu­tion whose mis­sion is to rec­og­nize and pro­mote excel­lence in the con­tent and cre­ation of Cana­di­an print and dig­i­tal pub­li­ca­tions. This year, from near­ly 2,000 indi­vid­ual entries received nation­wide, the NMAF’s 238 vol­un­teer judges nom­i­nat­ed a total of 376 sub­mis­sions from 92 dif­fer­ent Cana­di­an mag­a­zines for awards in 47 writ­ten, visu­al, inte­grat­ed and spe­cial cat­e­gories.
