The Sprawl nominated for 11 Alberta Magazine Awards

And the nominees are…

Finalists for the 2023 Alberta Magazines Awards were announced March 23 and The Sprawl is nominated for eleven awards—including Alberta Magazine of the Year.

Here are the nominees:

  • Kirti Bhadresa is nominated in the Feature Writing (Short) category for her story on why it's so hard for kids to walk to school in Calgary.

  • Onyie Ekene-Obi is nominated in the Photograph (Series or Essay) category for her photos documenting the work of Bear Clan Patrol Calgary on downtown streets.

  • Tori English is nominated in the Illustration category for her illustrations accompanying Cobra Collins's poem "Horsing Around," about Jason Kenney's resignation speech at Spruce Meadows.

  • Ximena González is nominated in the Feature Writing (Short) category for her story about the everyday experiences of transit users in Calgary.

  • Jeremy Klaszus has been named Editor of the Year—and is also nominated in the Alberta Story category for his tribute to Ian Tyson, which looked at the life and legacy of the western singer.

  • Taylor Lambert is nominated twice in the Profile category—once for his profile of (now-former) Alberta cabinet minister Jason Nixon, and once for his profile of political strategist Stephen Carter.

Congrats all around! The Sprawl is also nominated in the Editorial Package category, for our transit edition, and also in the Digital Presence category.

The winners will be announced May 11 at the Alberta Magazines Conference.
