KEN MACKENZIE WRITER'S AWARD

The Ken Mackenzie Writer's Award is an annual award given for the best article in the Yule Log for that year. The award is named in honor of the Christmas Philatelic Club's founder, the late Ken Mackenzie, who was himself a frequent contributor to the Yule Log.

Only original articles are considered for this award. The editor of the Yule Log selects several articles from the current year's Yule Logs. Members of the Executive Board and the editor cast their votes, ranking their first, second and third favorite choices. The editor tallies the scores (3 points for first, 2 points for second, 1 point for third) to select the winner.

See Criteria for the Ken Mackenzie Award.

A new award for writers of columns that appear regularly in the Yule Log has been established.

See Criteria for the Regular Columnists Award.
