In just its second year of entry, the Paint Horse Journal loped to the top of the card in one of the publishing industry’s toughest competition: FOLIO’s Eddie & Ozzie Awards.
FOLIO’s Eddie & Ozzie Awards recognize the very best in editorial and design in the business-to-consumer and business-to-business industries. It’s the most comprehensive and prestigious awards program of its kind in publishing.
Entered against more mainstream publications like AARP, Nature Conservancy Magazine and the National Rifle Association, the Journal snagged recognition in two Ozzie—design—categories.
The Journal earned first place for the “Association/Non-Profit—6 or more issues—Cover Design” category for the March 2016 “Full of Potential” issue. The stunning cover capturing a tender moment between mother and foal was taken by J.D. Waterhouse Photography.
Flash, the Journal’s special speed-event supplement earned Ozzie honorable mention in the “Association/Non-Profit—Supplemental Annual or One Shot category.”
“The entire publications staff is honored to receive such prestigious, nationwide recognition,” Director of Publications Jessica Hein said. “We love telling the story of our beautiful Paint Horses, and these honors help give them a well-deserved spotlight in the global media marketplace.”
