Vegas Seven has been nominated for six Maggie Awards, including two in major categories: Best New Publication and Best City & Metropolitan Publication. Known as “the Oscars of the magazine industry,” the Maggies honor publications and individual journalistic efforts deemed “Best in the West” by a panel of regional judges. This is the 60th anniversary of the awards, which are presented by the Western Publishing Association. Winners will be announced next month in Los Angeles.
