Nominations for the Student Writing category of the Western Magazine Awards, sponsored by the Amber Webb-Bowerman Memorial Foundation, are now open. Entry rules and regulations can be found at www.westernmagazineawards.ca. Nominations close March 4, 2011.

Nominations for the student writing category must have appeared in a magazine published in Western Canada in 2010.

The winner of the student writing award will receive $750, all finalists will receive recognition at the awards gala attended by western Canadian magazine editors and publishers as well as being mentioned with the finalists of all awards on the Western Magazine Awards Foundation website.

This award is sponsored by the Amber Webb-Bowerman Memorial Foundation, established in the summer of 2008 to honour and preserve the memory of journalist Amber Michelle Bowerman (nee Webb), and to help fulfill her dreams by supporting emerging artists and journalists.
