Precedent and Spacing took home top awards for the second year in a row in their categories (trade and small circulation, respectively), while Cottage Life won Magazine of the Year in the medium circulation group and Spafax’s Fairmont Magazine won Best Custom Magazine.

The evening began with a keynote address by acclaimed author Russell Smith, who discussed the implications of sharing personal stories in the public domain. He talked about his journey as a storyteller, and highlighted reasons why we live in a society that loves and loathes over-sharing, stating that we are currently in the era of reality-fiction.
