Alumni Review receives international honours

Magazine open to the Fall 2021 issue's article 'Threads of History.'

The Queen’s Alumni Review has been honoured yet again, this time by Trade Association Business Publications International (TABPI), through their annual Tabbie Awards.

“The Tabbie Awards stands out from other similar programs in its distinctive global reach, with local, regional, national, and international publications in all countries encouraged to participate,” the organization says. “The core mission of the Tabbie Awards is to recognize — to honour — journalism professionals who help drive excellence through their impressive ethics and talent.”

“While we were very sure that we had taken big steps to improve the Queen’s Alumni Review, the many awards the magazine has received this year, particularly in international competitions such as the Tabbies, are proof that our peers agree,” says Scott Anderson, Executive Director, Marketing, Communications and Donor Relations. “The Alumni Review has been recognized across education and publishing sectors – for design photographs, and storytelling – which speaks to its high calibre at all levels. We owe a debt of gratitude to our alumni for all their feedback, which helped make the magazine what it is today – one of the best alumni magazines in the country.”
