FOLIO:’s annual Eddie and Ozzie Awards are coming up quickly—don’t let this early summer lull fool you. In fact, the final deadline to enter is Friday, June 27.

So after June 27, that amazing November-issue cover your creative director built, or the blockbuster feature package your editors labored over, officially won’t get industry-wide recognition if you miss the deadline.

And this is an industry of fan boys and girls. We’re all watching what everyone else is doing. So the Eddie and Ozzie Awards, which feature an army of 300 judges who pour over more than 2,000 entries, is the best and biggest forum to get your hard work recognized and honored.

I can’t tell you how many times my team and I have heard the phrase "it’s all about quality content" when we’re talking to publishers about a new initiative. And it’s true. Technology may change, new trends emerge, but at the end of the day, it’s the content and its design that matter to the audience.

The Eddie and Ozzie Awards are your chance to let our industry know your brand has one of the best teams behind it.

Good luck and enter here.
