The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

Reader-funded series among Tyee’s three National Magazine Award nods

The Tyee is a three-time finalist in Canada's National Magazine Awards this year.

Nominated in the Best Web-Only Content category is Amanda Euringer's article, "Learn What’s In Your Chemical Soup," part of her five-part series funded by reader donations to Tyee Reporting Fellowship Funds.

Nominated in the same category is The Tyee’s provincial election reporting package, whose contributors included: Greg Amos, Rob Annandale, Blake Anderson, Tom Barrett, David Beers, Charles Campbell, Geoff Dembicki, Joe Fries, Ashley Gaboury, Sean Holman, Colleen Kimmett, Crawford Kilian, Irwin Loy, Andrew MacLeod, Rafe Mair, Michael McGonigle, Morgan Modjeski, Will McMartin, Adrian Nieoczym, Monte Paulsen, Chris Pollon, Bill Tieleman, Jackie Wong and Garrett Zehr. The election reporting was also funded by Tyee readers who were asked to tell which election issues reporting they wanted their donations to go towards supporting.

The Tyee’s new website look, introduced in August, is a finalist in the category Best Visual Design. The team responsible includes Biro Creative, Kineticode, Geoff D'Auria, Trish Mau, David Beers, Michelle Hoar, Dawn Buie and Alex Grunenfelder.
