Magazine of the Year

GOLD MEDAL: Nouveau Projet

The National Magazine Awards jury said of Nouveau Projet:

 

“Nouveau Projet is a near-perfect symbiosis of subject matter, expert writing and exceptionally original design. It sets itself apart thanks to inspiring themes and bold covers. The magazine offers a fresh take on the genre and dares to cover topics that are virtually absent in other media. The energy of the editorial team is tangible page after page. Nouveau Projet embodies the spirit of print magazines.”

 

Nouveau Projet also won Gold for Art Direction of an Entire Issue (“Automne/Hiver 2014”) and Words & Pictures (“La pointe des utopies”), and Silver for Editorial Package: Print (“Régénérescences”). Nouveau Projet launched in 2011 and was also a finalist for Magazine of the Year in 2014.
