Anglers Journal won two Eddie awards, and Outboard magazine took home a first in the annual Folio: journalism and design contest. The awards were presented at a dinner in New York City on Oct. 31.
The Winter 2019 issue of Anglers Journal won an Eddie award for best full issue in the outdoor/environmental category. The quarterly magazine also won the top award for a series of stories, Dispatches from Patagonia, also in the Winter issue. Outboard magazine managing editor Simon Murray captured an Eddie in the single-article category for his story about outboard racing in Michigan, which appeared in the inaugural issue of the magazine.
“It’s very gratifying to see these titles do well in a contest that attracts some of the best magazines in the business,” said Gary DeSanctis, president of Active Interest Media’s Marine Group. “The goal is to provide the best content possible for the thousands of boaters and anglers who read our magazines or consume our content digitally, or both.”
Power & Motoryacht received an honorable mention for a full issue (September) in the enthusiast/hobby category, and Anglers Journal received an honorable mention in the essays and criticism category for Callan Wink’s story “Fish Pimping” in the Winter issue.
Anglers Journal, Outboard and PMY are part of the AIM Marine Group, as is Soundings Trade Only.
