“What a wonderful accomplishment for our national magazine,” says ELCIC National Bishop Susan C. Johnson. "Canada Lutheran has consistently been recognized for its high standard of content, photos and design. I encourage everyone in the church to check out this publication and consider a subscription.”

ELCIC Graphic Designer Catherine Crivici won first place in the Feature Layout and Design category for her work on the October/November 2013 issue Pain and Blessing: Autism and the Church. “You’ve made a compelling layout,” noted the judge’s feedback. “There’s structure, and a good narrative arrangement to the images.”

Crivici received second place in the Edition Layout and Design of a Magazine category for the October/November issue. Her work was also recognized with a third place in the Front Cover of a Magazine category for the January/February 2013 issue.

ELCIC Director of Communications and Stewardship Trina Gallop Blank won second place in the News Photo category for A View from the Peace Tower, July/August 2013. “A different perspective of the event,” said the judge. “It is good to take advantages of location; gives a bit of a surprise.”

Columnist Rev. Daranne Harris won second place in the Biblical Interpretation category for Facing our Fears, March 2013. “A first rate piece and a pleasure to read,” said the judge.

Writer Geoff Kirbyson won third place in the Magazine Features category for the September 2013 article Hockey Chaplain: God cares about the people playing hockey. “Good opening -gets readers attention,” noted the judge in his feedback. “Great use of a profile to bring to light an entire program. Nice writing style. Good flow.”
