IDG, Massachusetts Mags Dominate
Magazine of the Year Awards

Two Massachusetts-based International Data Group publications, Computerworld and CSO, received Magazine of the Year honors during ASBPE's 28th Annual Azbee awards banquet, July 20 in Chicago. Computerworld was the top magazine in the 80,000-or-more circulation division; CSO won in the under-80,000-circulation category.

As if that weren't enough, three of the four Magazine of the Year honorable mentions were also based in Massachusetts. In the large-circ division, Boston-based CFO (owned by The Economist Group) and CIO, another IDG magazine, were runners up. And Information Security, a TechTarget publication based in Needham, Mass., got an honorable mention in the under-80,000-circulation category. (An honorable mention also went to Meetings & Conventions, which is owned by Secaucus, N.J.-based Northstar Travel Media.)

Not that this should come as a surprise. Six of the 20 Magazine of the Year finalists this year were from Massachusetts. (And, as mentioned in an earlier post, nine of the finalists were from the competition's Northeast region, which includes Massachusetts and nine other states.)

Magazine of the Year winners Computerworld and CSO were also among the biggest winners of national Azbee Gold Awards, with five each.

All the winners in the Magazine of the Year and the 40 editorial, design, web, and newsletter categories are detailed on the ASBPE web site.

Update, 3:54 p.m.: If anyone from the Boston/New England chapter has winning articles or images (regional or national competition) that they want to link to, please do. Leave a comment to this post with your link. Perhaps we can even start a Flickr gallery with some of the winning entry images.
I have to leave a brag about another Massachusetts-based award winner: Scott Raymond, our art director, won the Gold in the ASBPE Nationals for the Medical Meetings March/April 2005 cover, “Don't Panic.”

We are so proud of him!
