The Signature Awards are an annual celebration of Manitoba’s creative talent. Founded in 1988 by the Advertising Association of Winnipeg, the awards showcase the best advertising, marketing and design work produced in Manitoba the previous year. The Best Consumer Publication Design Award recognizes the best design for a consumer-facing communication vehicle or literary piece, print or online (magazine, catalogue, book, etc.).

Written by George Williams and Vanessa Desorcy and edited by Toque & Canoe’s editor-in-chief Kim Gray and senior editor Valerie Berenyi, Churchill Wild 25 Years of Adventure on the Hudson Bay Coast tells the story of how Mike and Jeanne Reimer pioneered and developed the world’s first true polar bear walking safaris, beginning with the purchase of an abandoned whale research station at Seal River on Canada’s Hudson Bay coast 25 years ago.

Packed with history reaching back over 80 years, beautiful photos, family and staff biographies, stories and anecdotes from guests, staff, media and photographers, the 184-page soft-cover publication takes readers on an amazing  journey that started with one paying guest at Seal River Heritage Lodge in 1993, to the present day Churchill Wild operation, which now welcomes over 700 guests annually to see and photograph polar bears at ground level at one of their three luxury remote ecolodges on the Hudson Bay coast – two of which are members of the prestigious National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection.
