Alpinist Magazine announced that it has received its first publishing award. At the Fifty-Third Annual Maggies Awards, held in Los Angeles, CA, on April 23, the Western Publication Association (WPA) awarded Alpinist its "Maggie" award in the Quarterlies/Consumer category for Alpinistšs winter issue (Issue 5). For the award, which acknowledges editorial and design excellence, Alpinist competed with nearly 1,700 entries from magazines published or distributed west of the Mississippi River.

The (WPA) is a non-profit trade association working to advance the business of print and online magazines in the western United States. For more than fifty years, the WPA has bestowed awards of merit to deserving publications whose work was deemed "the best of the west" in a wide variety of categories within the publishing industry.

"We're very pleased to have the hard work of our first year acknowledged formally by the publishing industry," said Marc Ewing, Alpinist's co-founder and publisher. "We're even more pleased to win in a consumer category rather than in a sports category."

Christian Beckwith, co-founder, with Ewing, and editor-in-chief of the magazine, seconded Ewing's sentiments. "Every member of our team shares in this award," he said.

Alpinist Magazine is an archival-quality quarterly publication that celebrates world adventure climbing and its pursuant lifestyle. While the magazinešs reputation has grown quickly among readers for its stunning design and the quality of its stories and images, this is the first award the magazine has received.
