#Närhetsliv was first published in spring 2017 and distributed to all households in Boden, as a way to strengthen Boden’s place brand and create pride among Boden residents. Behind the magazine is the communications unit of the municipality of Boden, which uses local photographer Mats Engfors for the high-quality images. In 2019, #Närhetsliv won the Publishing Prize in the category of citizen magazines. Its texts, images, layout and print scored sky-high in the juried competition.
