Editor’s Column

Gold
EXHIBITOR
The Commoditization of Creativity
Exhibitor Media Group

 

Judging comments:
“Superb, concise writing that tactfully addresses an uncomfortable topic: The stealing of ideas. This one is age-old, but the writer finds a current, industry-specific way of reminding us that this unethical practice ‘devalues the design process.’ Take heed, folks. There’s much wisdom imparted in this exemplary column.

 

 

Silver
Champion magazine
Editor’s Column
Brian Hendrickson

 

Judging comments:
“Thoughtful writing about an inspiring story. The editor tells the story of a college athlete who found his glory in sprinting ... and who competed in the NCAA Championships with his two prosthetic legs.

 

Bronze
Roads & Bridges
Keep it out of reach
Bill Wilson

 

Judging comments:
“The writer tells the story of the 2017 fire that collapsed an Atlanta I-85 bridge span, all because of a Georgia DOT oversight. He admirably chides the GDOT into taking responsibility for having stored flammable materials under the span, but he points to positives, too: Multiple transportation departments are reinspecting bridges and considering changes in storage policies. This column took the perfect tone: No-nonsense and stern ... as it called for stern guidance from the top down.

Silver
Pizza Today
Oh, Gee!
Mandy Wolf Detwiler

 

 

Judging comments:
“An inspiring, well-told story of a self-made restauranteur! While reading this profile, I felt as though I was sitting at the pizza place, having a one-on-one conversation with the owner — and I wanted a slice of pizza! Great work setting the scene and capturing the personality of the subject.


Bronze
FLEXO Magazine
The Psychologist of Packaging
Brad Pareso

 

 

Judging comments:
“A well-written, insightful article. The author took a potentially basic or dry topic (product packaging) and made it very interesting. He included useful tips, and did a great job integrating quotes and research. I’ll never look at product labels or colors the same way again.
