SWE Magazine received two top awards and four honorable mentions in this year’s FOLIO: Eddie and Ozzie competition.
The competition honors excellence in “engaging content and gorgeous design” in market-specific categories across all sectors of the publishing industry. The Eddies recognize editorial excellence, while the Ozzies honor excellence in design.
Winners normally are announced during a formal banquet in New York City each October as part of the FOLIO conference. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, however, this year’s event was canceled, and winners were notified earlier than usual.
Art Director JoAnn Dickey received two top awards and two honorable mentions in the Ozzies portion. She earned top honors in Feature Design for “Cameras: Altering the Way We See Reality,” an article that appeared in the Winter 2020 issue; and, in the Design, Single Magazine Issue category for the Fall 2019 issue.
Dickey’s Fall 2019 and Winter 2020 cover designs received honorable mentions.
In the Eddies segment of the competition, “COVID-19: STEM Strikes Back,” written by contributor Seabright McCabe, earned an honorable mention in the Column/Blog category. The column appeared in the Spring 2020 issue of SWE Magazine. Also receiving an honorable mention, in the Podcast category, was the two-part podcast series “SWE Diverse Podcast: One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Woman Engineering Kind,” Parts 1 and 2. The podcast was created and presented by Anne M. Perusek, SWE director of editorial and publications, and Troy Eller English, SWE archivist.
The magazine also received recognition this year in the APEX Awards, earning two Grand Awards and six Awards of Excellence.
