2019 CRMA WINNERS

This past weekend, the Twenty-First Digital team traveled to the City and Regional Magazine Association (CRMA) conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We learned from fellow publishers and heard from keynote speakers Tyler Cabot and David Granger. We even got to hang out with our clients and hosted a Game of Thrones watch party for the series finale.

On Monday, CRMA announced the winners in its annual industry awards. 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.

We’re excited to see so many friendly faces on this list and want to give a special shout out to our clients who won: Sonoma Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Boston Magazine, Baltimore Magazine, D Magazine and Down East: The Magazine of Maine. Congratulations!
