Toronto, ON — Our award-winning tradition continued yet again this year as Machinery & Equipment MRO received a Gold Award for one of its two nominations in a prestigious competition for business journalism at a ceremony at the Carlu in Toronto last night.

The Kenneth R. Wilson (KRW) Awards are presented annually by the Canadian Business Press. Business and trade magazines submit their best work in 20 different categories, and nominees are named from the top 10 entries in each category. Over 600 entries were received in the 2010 competition.

Machinery & Equipment MRO senior contributing editor Carroll McCormick of Montreal received a nomination — and the Gold Award (first place) — in the Best Technology/Industrial/Manufacturing Article category for his feature story, Naval Gazing, a profile of the maintenance operations on two Oceanex container ships working in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It appeared in our December 2009 issue.

As well, MRO Magazine columnist Peter Phillips of Windsor, NS, was nominated as one of the Top 10 submissions in the Best How-To Article or Series category for his article, How to Justify a CMMS System Purchase, from the magazine’s September 2009 issue. The column discussed 10 questions readers should answer to know for certain if they should invest in computerized maintenance management software.

Both articles are archived on our website at www.mromagazine.com.

That makes a total of 10 KRW awards the magazine has received, including four Gold (first place) awards. We also have received a total of four APEX Awards for Publication Excellence.

Our hearty congratulations go to both of this year’s nominees.
