Baltimore Magazine Receives 12 CRMA Nominations

City magazine association recognized work in editorial, art, and digital categories.

On Tuesday, the City and Regional Magazine Association (CRMA) announced that Baltimore magazine received 12 nominations in its annual industry awards, the most the publication has received in the competition’s 34-year history.

More than 100 judges from national publications around the country—in coordination with the University of Missouri School of Journalism—helped to choose finalists in 35 categories including editorial, design, digital, and general excellence.

Baltimore magazine’s feature story “The Shape of Water” (October 2018), about an intrepid group of boat builders on the Eastern Shore, nearly swept the competition. Senior editor Lydia Woolever was nominated for Feature Story; creative director Amanda White-Iseli, photographer Justin Tsucalas, and production manager Jon Timian were nominated for Feature Design; and digital production designer Aaron Hope and digital editor Jess Mayhugh were nominated for Multi-Platform Storytelling.

The magazine’s art department is especially proud today to receive additional nominations in Spread Design for “The Great Mancini” (April 2018), “Fancy Footwork” (September 2018), and “The Reign of Spain” (December 2018) and Feature Design for “Let’s Do Brunch.” (October 2018). These awards recognized creative director Amanda White-Iseli, assistant art director Danielle Dernoga, production manager Jon Timian, and photographers Mike Morgan, Justin Tsucalas, and Scott Suchman.

Additional nominations included “The (Every) Body Issue” (January 2018) for Special Issue, “How To Throw the Perfect Crab Feast” (July 2018) for Food or Dining package, and “Can H-Town Kick Its Habit?” (July 2018) for Civic Journalism. Editors Ron Cassie, Lauren LaRocca, and Jane Marion spearheaded those packages.

On the digital side, Baltimore magazine was recognized for its Online Column “Baby on Board” in which contributing writer Megan Isennock shares funny and poignant tales from parenthood. Lastly, “Arts District,” a bi-monthly compilation of the magazine’s arts and culture content that is deployed by digital content producer Michelle Evans, was nominated for E-Newsletter.

Judges named five finalists in each category and will announce the ultimate winners at CRMA’s annual conference in Minneapolis in May 2019.
