I am pleased Mike White won Magazine Feature Writer of the Year, his stories are always insightful and he writes with a style that is easy to read.

Also worthy of mention is North and South won Best Magzine Cover, and freelance illustrator Anna Crichton won Best Editorial Grpahics for an illustration published in Metro Magazine.
