For the third time in four years, The Feathertale Review is up for two National Magazine Awards. Samantha Mehra Donaldson is nominated in the Personal Journalism category for her story “Roots” which was published in the Feathertale special issue Eat It: Sex, Food & Women’s Writing. Meanwhile, Alex Gorodskoy is nominated in the illustration category for his exceptional endpaper art in The Feathertale Review #12. This marks the second time a Feathertale contributor has been nominated in the illustration category. Dani Crosby was previously nominated in that category for her cover art in The Feathertale Review #6. Feathertale has received three National Magazine Awards in the past: gold for Best Covers (The Feathertale Review #6, 2010), gold for Best Single Issue (The Feathertale Review #9, 2012), and silver for Humour (The Feathertale Review #9, 2012).
The awards are handed out annually by the Canadian National Magazine Awards Foundation.
