COPA recognizes outstanding achievement in Canada’s digital media each year, and finalists included CBC, Postmedia, Global News, The Walrus and HuffPost Canada.

“What an honour to be recognized among such prestigious publishers,” said Elaine Kupser, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, who has been publishing IMPACT for over 29 years.

IMPACT Magazine picked up a Gold for their Summer 2020 Digital Edition – Best Branded Content where almost $100,000 of free advertising was offered to businesses in support of those going through such difficult times; plus cutting-edge editorial including ‘A Change of Course for the Race Industry’ to ‘The Business of Fitness’ – two industries hit hard by the pandemic.

 “The magazine industry has also been hit very hard this past year, but if you can’t help others during a global pandemic, then when?” said Kupser. “We are fighting our way through this difficult time just like everyone else, and we’re determined to work together to get to the other side.”
