EXHIBITOR
30 Tips to Court the Press
Lee Knight, Travis Stanton, Kelly Tedrick, Brian Dukerschein, Linda Armstrong

 

Judging comments:
“Valuable feature, fun graphics including simple but highly effective green check marks and red Xs to catch your eye. Well-done chronological text flow breaks 30 steps into a manageable step-by-step list. Publicity is gold, and journalists have very different needs than the buyers visiting booths most of the time. A how-to that provides the ability to court both provides a game-changing skill.

“Wonderful job capturing this iconic segment of the industry through diverse vantage points. Each medium — the stories, photos, graphics — showcases the subject expertly. The layout is clean and uses minimal color and ample white space so that the eye is riveted on the subject: Sausages. The writers clearly know the language of the industry. Also, their stories are well-sourced and informative. At the end, readers are left thinking, ‘please give me more.’

The design uses playful color and layout customization throughout to blend all elements into an accessible package. Concise, light writing provides for an all-around entertaining read.

“While the premise of this article immediately draws interest, it’s the follow-through that makes it a winner. The use of color in heads and subheads complements the renderings, and the copy nicely showcases the problem-solving approaches of members. Fun to look at and learn from.

 

Bronze
Compact Equipment
Operation Editors
Keith Gribbins, Chris Crowell, Pam Kleineke, Deb McManus

 

Judging comments:
“These stories on hot new construction equipment prove that Compact Equipment gets its audience. The team didn’t just present analysis and trends, it gathered specs, sought out advice — and operated machines from across the U.S. Each article exudes enthusiasm in part because of the extra mile traveled to experience the culture of the companies featured.

“In addition to detailed reporting and clear writing, these stories use an appealing dossier-style design and ample onsite photographs. All elements come together to make for a truly informative read. The stated mission of the section was to ‘bring the operational experience to our readers.’ Mission accomplished — and then some.
