Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine publisher Peter Moynes is pleased about the publications recent award nominations.

Kootenay Mountain Culture in the running for Magazine of the Year

Nelson-based magazine Kootenay Mountain Culture has been nominated for two Western Magazine awards.

Just months after Kootenay Mountain Culture magazine celebrated its 10th anniversary and the debut of its new publication Coast Mountain Culture, the team is celebrating again after being nominated for new Western Magazine Awards.

“We were pleased,” said publisher Peter Moynes about the news. “We’re honoured to be nominated and we’re up against some good magazines.”

Kootenay Mountain Culture is facing off against BC Business Magazine, Vancouver Magazine, Western Living and the Malahat Review for Magazine of the Year in BC and the Yukon.

“We’ve also been nominated for Best Photographic Feature or Series for a piece called Simple Lessons by Dave Quinn that appeared in our 10th anniversary issue,” said Moynes.

The nominations were announced at the beginning of May and the ceremony will be held on Friday, June 15 in Vancouver.

“Things are really busy with the magazines, but are going well,” said Moynes. “The magazines are doing quite well. There has been great response to Coast Mountain Culture. It’s doing as we hoped it would and people are excited about it. The first summer edition is going like hot cakes.”

The summer edition of both Kootenay Mountain Culture and Coast Mountain Culture are currently available.
