Kirkland, Washington – Paddlesport Publishing Inc., publisher of Paddler, Paddle Dealer and Kayak magazines, announces that PADDLER has been nominated as 2008 Maggie Award Finalists in four categories.

The four Finalist categories include Best Outdoor, Sports, Boating & Recreation magazine for the July/August 2007 issue, Best Supplement, Consumer, for the American Canoe Association & U.S. Coast Guard “Paddling 101” special in September/October ‘07, Best Signed Essay, Consumer, for its November/December '07 issue, and Most Improved Publication Overall, Consumer - under 50,000 circulation.

"Paddler is extremely proud to have been nominated in four Maggie categories and to be the only paddlesports publication to be so honored," said Glen Bernard, Paddler Publisher and General Manager. "It is especially gratifying to be singled out for outstanding editorial and design achievement among such prestigious publishers such as Road & Track, Sunset and Backpacker given the fact that Paddler is doing so with such a small staff and with budgets that are several times smaller than many of these media powerhouses. Paddler's recognition is a testament to the passion, talent and dedication of our editors and designers and to our entire publishing team's commitment to its customers, the paddlesports market, and to providing the highest level of editorial quality and design innovation."

Each year since 1951 the Western Publications Association (WPA) has honored publishers located west of the Mississippi for outstanding achievement and editorial and design excellence with the prestigious Maggie Awards. The 2008 Maggie Awards will be held on May 2nd in Los Angeles.

Paddler Magazine is the Official Magazine of the American Canoe Association. Published bi-monthly since 1991, more than 45,000 copies are distributed to ACA members, subscribers, newsstands and paddling events throughout the country.

To get a free sample issue, contact Glen Bernard by calling (425)814-4140 ext. 11, emailing info@paddlermagazine.com, or writing: Glen Bernard, Paddlesport Publishing Inc., 12040 98th Ave. NE, Suite 205, Kirkland, WA 98034.
