ASBPE Hands Out Magazine of the Year Awards
Builder and Public CIO magazines were named Magazines of the Year at the American Society of Business Publication Editors’ annual Azbee Awards of Excellence ceremony last Thursday in New York City. PCWorld.com was recognized also as Web Publication of the Year.
Awards judges say Builder “examines major national issues and their affect on readers” and “meets its mission well,” according to a news release. Judges say Public CIO “brings ordinary subject matter to a higher level” and “appear effortless.” Builder was recognized among magazines with a circulation of 80,000 or higher while Public CIO was honored in the under 80,000 circulation category.
PCWorld.com is “well-organized, authoritative, informative and one of the most useful Web sites of its kind,” according to awards judges.
Other big winners included CFO, CIO and Computerworld, which received 11 national awards each. CFO collected nine “gold” awards in categories from print editorial and graphics to Web site to multi-platform. The Stephen Barr Award for feature writing was given to David McClintick for his 26-page feature story “How Harvard Lost Russia,” which appeared in the January 2006 issue of Institutional Investor.
The Azbee Awards are handed out in more than 50 print, digital and multi-platform categories, recognizing editorial and graphic excellence. This year, 41 gold editorial awards and 31 gold graphic awards were handed out.
