How to be a winner in Vancouver luxury magazine competition
VANCOUVER — It’s not often that the best of the best are invited to speak at luxury magazines.
Yet that’s exactly what is happening at the annual luxury lifestyle magazine event called the VLC Awards.
The winners, selected by editors and photographers from around the world, will appear in the March issue of VLC.
The awards show is held every four years at the Vancouver Convention Centre.VLC is a global lifestyle magazine that publishes in a number of languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, Polish and Portuguese.
The competition began in 2012.
The winner of this year’s event will appear on the March 1 issue of the magazine.
The magazine is edited by the editor of luxury magazine Vogue, Nasser Fadel, and includes a selection of the world’s best luxury brands, a magazine feature and other events.
The VLC awards were founded in the late 1990s by editor-in-chief of luxury lifestyle publication Vogue Maryann Belk and her husband, editor-at-large Vogue editor in chief Christian Dior.
The inaugural VLC Award was announced in 2009 and went on to win seven awards in 11 years.
The last award was for the best fashion magazine, Vogue.
Vancouver’s VLC Magazine, which has offices in Canada, the U.K. and China, has won awards in three of the last five years, including the magazine’s annual best-selling book of the year, “The VLAD Design Guide.”
It was a hard-fought battle, said VLC president and publisher, Jody Clements.
“There’s no question in my mind the award would have won if we had been the top dog at the top,” she said.
“I think it’s a testament to how we managed to find a way to win it and not just a reflection of our success.”
