Catapult Creative Labs Nominated for Folio: Eddie Award

Boulder, CO (October 4, 2017) – Catapult Creative Labs (,  Active Interest Media’s marketing services division, has been named a finalist for the 2017 Folio: Eddie Awards in the Custom Full Issue magazine category for its “Exit 205” project. For more than 20 years, the Eddie Awards have recognized excellence in magazine editorial content across all industry sectors.

“Exit 205” — a reference to Exit 205 off of Colorado’s I-70– is a custom publication  Catapult Creative Labs developed for the Colorado towns of Dillon and Silverthorne, introducing readers to one of the lesser known and most beautiful vacation spots in the Rocky Mountains. “Exit 205” provides top-level service journalism, with features ranging from five favorite local hiking trails and a guide to winter activities, to what’s new on the arts and culture scene and spotlights on culinary pioneers of local restaurants.

“We’re honored to be recognized as a finalist for the Eddie Awards,” says Kelly Blake, Catapult Creative Lab’s Vice President, Client Services and Strategy. “The ‘Exit 205’ project really showcases how we approach custom content projects. We work hand in hand with our clients to develop content that will meet their goals, engage their target audiences, and capture their unique voice and brand. It all comes together in a beautiful final product that everyone is proud of.”

Winners and Honorable Mentions for the Eddies will be announced on Wednesday, October 11. The complete list of Finalists can be found here.
