Canadian Literature, the country’s oldest journal devoted to studying Canada’s literature, has won the award for “Best Cross-Platform” at the first annual Canadian Online Publishing awards announced Monday in Toronto. George Elliott Clarke, one of Canada’s most celebrated writers, and an Officer in the Order of Canada, accepted the award on the journal’s behalf.
This unique awards program recognizes excellence in online editorial and innovation by Canadian magazine and website publishers.
The cross-platform category recognizes excellence in repurposing print content onto the web. Websites competed in up to ten categories ranging from best news articles to best design to overall best website. An independent judging panel of highly regarded industry professionals and experts reviewed all entries in each category. Canadian Literature has published more than 200 issues of criticism, reviews and poetry and recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.
