GENERAL EXCELLENCE STATE OR REGIONAL PUBLICATION 4 entries Winner Equine Journal Kelly Ballou, Editor Elisabeth Gilbride, Publisher Daniel Goodwin, Art Director June, July, September 2014 Equine Journal is a beautiful, engaging publication from cover to the "Last Laugh" back column. Excellent mix of features and quick take home items sections. The Equine Journal is a shining example of what an all-discipline publication should be: entertaining, educational and informative. GENERAL EXCELLENCE SELF-SUPPORTED PUBLICATION CIRCULATION UNDER 15,000 11 entries Winner Driving Digest Ann Pringle, Editor Linda Yutzy-2infinity Design, Art Director Published by Pringle Publications January/February, July/August, September/October 2014 Driving Digest offers highly effective covers with some variety but a strong sense of identity. Contents pages use light color to divide them up; good use of photos; well arranged. The creative use of color playing off illustrations on a few key features is a welcome break from the "standard" layouts seen in many magazines. Likewise, the writing is a cut above, drawing the reader into the scene or the personality. Honorable Mention EquiManagement Kimberly S. Brown, Publisher/Editor Leslie Warren, Art Director Summer, Fall, Winter 2014 EquiManagement's excellent covers portray different aspects of the equine vet business. Plenty of articles mentioned on the cover yet not cluttered or distracting. Contents is clean and easily used. The features jump right into the topic; are very straightforward. This publication was the most practical and useful of the entries and one I would recommend to all equine vets. GENERAL EXCELLENCE
