Just as the home décor industry has the ARTS Awards, journalism has its own competition in excellence.
Plymouth Meeting, PA-based Bravo Business Media, the publisher of both enLIGHTenment magazine and Contract Lighting magazine, is proud to announce that its newest publication, Contract Lighting magazine, has been selected as a Finalist in the “Best New Magazine Launch for Business-to-Business Publications” category.
The Folio: Eddie and Ozzie Awards are considered to be the most prestigious and most inclusive awards program in the publishing community. Each year, more than 2,000 entries compete across 200 categories, benchmarking excellence in editorial and design. Judges assess every magazine submitted in its entirety – from informative content to graphic presentation.
Contract Lighting was also chosen as a Finalist in the “Single Article, Architecture & Design for Business-to-Business Publications” category for its feature on Monarch Bar in Kansas City, written by Bravo Business Media’s Assistant Editor, Hannah Rachel Carroll.
Ace Rosenstein, Publisher/CEO of Bravo Business Media, says, “I am thrilled that the judges’ opinion reflects what we hear from the readership all the time – that we present the most compelling, informative content that is relevant to their businesses.”
“The Eddie & Ozzie Awards recognize the pillars of magazine and digital publishing – outstanding journalism and content, photography, design, and the extremely talented people who produce it,” says Caysey Welton, Content Director at Folio. “No other program celebrates a wider range of publications. Whether it’s a niche magazine with an audience of 5,000, an online trade publication, or a mass consumer brand that reaches tens of millions of readers on multiple platforms, these awards shine a light on all their brilliant work.”
Linda Longo, Editorial Director of Contract Lighting, adds, “Having had such overwhelming appreciation and support for our newest title from the hospitality, commercial, and architectural lighting communities over the past year has been extremely gratifying. To have been named a Finalist in such a prestigious competition from our peers in publishing is a satisfying accomplishment.”
