What issues of my magazine are eligible?

Specifically, all issues distributed on Canadian newsstands between October 1,2014 and September 30, 2015 will qualify but submissions must be accompanied by a verification from the National Distributor. This special distributor statement needs to be attached to the submission, otherwise the entry will not be considered.
