Magazines Canada has announced that Legion Magazine is a finalist in two categories in the Canadian Cover Awards for 2012.

The magazine’s January/February 2012 issue celebrating the 200th anniversary of the War Of 1812 is a finalist in the category of General Interest, Arts, Lifestyle and Regional.

The cover from the Special Interest Publication (SIP) WW II: The War That Had To Be Won is nominated in the SIPs and New Magazines category. The evocative image of a Canadian soldier during the liberation of the Netherlands highlights the cover. Legion Magazine won the bronze award in this category in 2011 for its first SIP, WW I: The War That Shaped A Nation.

Originally called the Canadian Newsstand Awards, the awards were launched in 2002 by Masthead, the magazine devoted to news in the magazine industry. The awards take into account the title’s newsstand sales performance with sales results worth 50 per cent of the final score. The other 50 per cent is determined by a panel of judges with expertise in newsstand promotions and focuses on the visuals and design.

The winners will be announced at a reception in Toronto on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
