LogiMonde media is pleased to announce that contributing writer, Christina Newberry, was awarded first place in the Travel Media Association of Canada's (TMAC) 2017 TMAC Awards, held in Victoria, BC.
Newberry's print feature, Sea, Smoke and Fire: The Ancient Seafood Traditions of Ise-Shima, Japan, ran in the March 2017 issue of PAX magazine, and earned first place in TMAC's Food/Drink category.
"The smoky huts where Ise-Shima's seafood culture come alive are well off the radar for most North American tourists," Newberry said. "I wanted to share the moments I spent with the passionate people carrying on these ancient traditions in small coastal towns that feel a world away from Japan's big cities."
A well-deserved award
Vice president of publishing, media, marketing & development Anne-Marie Santos added:
"I want to congratulate Christina Newberry, one of our valued collaborators, for this great recognition and the excellent work she does. It is a real privilege to be able to count on such talented collaborators, whose work is recognized through prestigious competitions such as the TMAC Awards. At LogiMonde media, we are proud to see that PAX magazine shines across the country thanks to the talent of the people who actively participate in its success."
This is Newberry's second award from TMAC. Two years ago, she received an honourable mention in the environmental tourism feature category for her story on Elephant Hills in Thailand, called, Where the Wild Things Are.
Newberry, who currently resides in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is an avid contributor for Paxnews.com and PaxNewsWest.com.
"Canada's travel writing community tells so many wonderful and important stories. It was a thrill to have my work recognized with this award," Newberry said.
