A few weeks ago, the same issue won two national design awards, one gold and one bronze.
The Azbees, presented annually by the American Society of Business Publishers and Editors (ASBPE), are one of the most competitive contests for business-to-business, trade, association and professional publications. In most categories, a gold, silver and bronze award is given.
