Matthew DewarI am thrilled to announce that Precedent has been shortlisted for a National Magazine Award in the category of “Best Portrait Photography.”

This is the 31st annual National Magazine Awards – recognizing the best in magazine publishing across the country. Out of over 2,100 entries, judges selected 303 finalists in 39 categories. Fellow nominees include national magazines such as Toronto Life, Maclean’s, The Walrus, and Report on Business.

The nominated photo is a portrait that ran on the last page of our launch issue called “My Secret Life,” about Lang Michener lawyer Matthew Dewar and his ’80s music coverband.

Congratulations go to art director Jason Logan and photographer Liam Sharp. A special thanks to Matthew Dewar who was such a good sport and clearly very photogenic!
