Memphis Magazine Earns Top Honors 

Memphis magazine received a first-place Gold Medal for General Excellence at the 2008 City and Regional Magazine Awards, presented during the final night of the City and Regional Magazine Association's annual convention held May 31st through June 1st at The Peabody. Memphis, produced by Contemporary Media, which also publishes the Memphis Flyer and Memphis Parent, also earned a Gold Medal in the ancillary publication division for Memphis Business Quarterly and a third-place Bronze Medal in the cover design category for its June 2007 "Fat City" issue.

Judges noted: "Memphis magazine hits the high notes of any top-notch city magazine, with attractive and intriguing covers, lively coverage of local celebrities, and mouth-watering food photography. But what really sets Memphis apart is the audacity of its goal: It strives to be the authority on all things Memphis, and to a large degree, it succeeds."

More than 60 magazines competed in this year's contest. The competition is organized by the University of Missouri School of Journalism, which selected judges from Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, The New York Times, and other national publications.

Memphis magazine has been honored with more than 40 regional and national journalism awards since being founded in 1976. This is its first Gold Medal for General Excellence from CRMA.
