ROCKPORT — “Maine Homes by Down East” — the quarterly publication for Maine homeowners and those considering owning a Maine home — announced it was named a finalist in the City and Regional Magazine Association’s 2021 award category for Home/Shelter. CRMA,  which provides awards for excellence to qualified member organizations, recognized Down East in three categories overall.

“The team at Maine Homes by Down East thanks CRMA and the University of Missouri School of Journalism for continuing to recognize our hard work,” said Maine Homes editor Sarah Stebbins. “Over the years, we’ve proven that our coverage of Maine architecture, design, and real estate can compete with the very best magazines in the country. In 2022, we plan to work even harder to win our category and keep Maine on the map.”
