Des Moines, IA. (August 9, 2023) – Three Active Interest Media Marine Group publications were named as finalists of the 2023 FOLIO: Eddie & Ozzie awards. The YACHTS INTERNATIONAL Spring 2023 Issue, SOUNDINGS April 2022 Issue, and PASSAGEMAKER’S “V for Victory” article were recognized.
“The publishing industry is bursting with talented professionals working around the clock to deliver meaningful, and engaging content to communities of like interests around the globe”, said Trish Borrelli, Sr. Marketing Director of the Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Awards. “Writers and creatives not only have to break through the noise to engage audiences, they have to make it happen even faster with access to content at our fingertips 24/7. When you truly consider how difficult it is to reach and engage an audience with your content over other options, and then see the ripple effect from the buzz created, you understand why this recognition program means so much to the publishing industry.”
Over 1,100 entries were received across nearly 170 categories. Finalists represent the highest-scoring entries per category, adjudicated by qualified editorial and design professionals.
Daniel Harding, Editorial Director of Active Interest Media’s Marine Group states “We’re exceptionally proud that three of our titles are being recognized with these prestigious awards,” said Daniel Harding, Editorial Director of Active Interest Media’s Marine Group. “In a world where there are so many platforms vying for our attention, rich, immersive storytelling has to remain the foundation of everything we do. It’s gratifying that FOLIO also values and recognizes that.”
FOLIO: Eddie & Ozzie Awards is the most prestigious recognition program in the publishing community. There’s a place in the spotlight for every digital publication, magazine, regional title, association and brand, recognizing excellence in editorial content creation and design.
An awards gala will be held in New York City on October 24, 2023 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. Tickets went on sale for the event on August 8, 2023.
