MBH&H honored by magazine peers
Friday, October 16th 2020
Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Magazine has been honored with a handful of national magazine awards for its editorial content by Folio in its annual magazine contest, including an honorable mention for general excellence and a first place for single feature story.
Folio’s annual awards program—spanning all corners of the magazine publishing industry—recognizes the very best in editorial and design. It’s the most comprehensive and prestigious awards program of its kind in the industry. Each year the contest draws close to 2,000 entries in about 50 categories.
“I am so proud of everyone who helped put these stories together,” said Editor Polly Saltonstall. “We are a relatively small magazine, competing against much larger circulation publications, which makes these awards especially sweet.”
The Strange Tale of Outer Baldonia by Wendy Arundel, won first place for single story, competing against city and regional magazines in the Northeast. (https://maineboats.com/print/issue-163/strange-tale-outer-baldonia) Arundel’s story recounted her visit to a small island off the coast of Nova Scotia that had a brief moment in the international spotlight in the 1960s as a micro-nation formed by her grandfather.
