You will be pleased to know that your humble media servants won silver in the annual FOLIO Eddie Awards in the category for best full issue from a regional consumer magazine. We won the award for our 35th anniversary issue. We had to stand on the podium and watch as Time Inc.’s Sunset Magazine sang its company’s anthem.
(Magazine trivia: there’s a connection between D Magazine and Sunset. Anyone remember former D editor Melissa Houtte? She ran the ship here when I was an intern, back in 1992. She left D to take the helm at Sunset. I recall being rather surprised when I learned that, at the time, she didn’t know the voting age was 18.)
