Two stories published by The Northern Miner in 2018 have been nominated for the 2019 National Magazine Awards: B2B.
Northern Miner editor-in-chief John Cumming got the nod in the “Best Profile of a Company” category for his look at Toronto-based Black Iron (TSX: BKI; US-OTC: BKIRF) in the feature site-visit article, “Black Iron advances Shymanivske premium iron ore project in Ukraine.”
Northern Miner senior staff writer Trish Saywell has been nominated in the “Best Profile of a Person” category for her in-depth profile of Barrick Gold (TSX: ABX: NYSE: GOLD) founder and philanthropist Peter Munk in the article, “Mining titan and philanthropist Peter Munk’s lifetime of achievement.”
A dedicated roster of 62 judges nominated 95 entries from 34 various B2B publications. The NMA:B2B notes “these finalists emerged from a rigorous judging process, made possible by the B2B industry experts who volunteered their time and expertise.”
The award winners will be announced on May 29 at a ceremony in Toronto.
The inaugural “National Magazine Awards: B2B” replace the defunct KRW Awards for trade journalism — which stopped in 2016 after 60 years — and come under the umbrella of the Annual National Magazine Awards, now in their 42nd year.
