MONTCLAIR, NJ (November 6, 2019) – SmartWorkMedia won six honors, including three gold awards, in FOLIO’s prestigious Eddie & Ozzie Awards, announced in New York on Wednesday, October 30.

Top winners included two gold awards for best full issue of a publication — INSTORE, for its May 2019 issue, in the B2B retail category, and PETS+ for its June 2018 issue in the B2B Animals/Pets Category.

INVISION’s website, INVISIONMAG.COM, also won a gold award for B2B healthcare website.

The competition, which attracted more than 2,500 entries in 33 categories, recognized publications for print and digital design, as well as breaking coverage, feature writing and how-to articles.

Honorable mention winners included INVISION for best single issue (Nov-Dec 2018) in the B2B healthcare category, as well as a instructional/how-to award for INVISION (“Epic Fail“, written by Chris Burslem, in April 2019 issue) and a feature design award for PETS+ (“Lab Work“, February 2019 issue).

“These awards signal a vote of confidence to our marketing partners that they are investing in best-of-class publications and digital content platforms,” says Matthijs Braakman, publisher and chief executive officer of SmartWork Media. “The award for the print edition of PETS+ proves that our newest product is truly a market leader, while the website award for INVISION shows just how much progress SmartWork Media has made in its digital transformation.”

“We continue to be extremely proud of our editorial products, both print and online, and are confident that we’re bringing readers the very best content and consumer-quality presentation in all business-to-business publishing,” says David Squires, group editorial director of SmartWork Media. “Awards like these mean a lot to us. But they still will never mean as much as the true passion for our products that we see every day in notes and letters from professional readers in the three vertical industries we cover.”

The six FOLIO Eddie and Ozzie awards bring the company’s total since 2004 to 148, making SmartWork Media one of the most highly decorated publishers, per title, in the world.
