25 Untacked Kat Netzler, Editor Katherine Bellissimo, Publisher Sylvia Gashi-Silver, Art Director Winter, Spring, Summer 2014 Gorgeous covers are in keeping with the intent of Untacked. Contents are bold and effective. The extra-wide pages allow for bold layouts and this magazine delivers them. Call out quotes break up those big pages when a photo doesn't. Much of the writing has the kind of first paragraph that catches the reader's imagination and draws them into the story. Topics are spot-on for the magazine's mission. GENERAL EXCELLENCE SELF-SUPPORTED PUBLICATION CIRCULATION 15,000 AND OVER 10 entries Winner EQUUS Laurie Prinz, Editor Celia Strain, Art Director Published by Active Interest Media March, June, October 2014 EQUUS' covers capture the essence of the horse. Plenty of information on the cover without being too busy. Attractive and effective contents. Features are thorough, well-written and well-illustrated. Western Horseman Ross Hecox, Editor Patty Tiberg, Publisher Ron Bonge, Art Director January, July, November 2014 The covers of Western Horseman call up the old west. Contents are flexible to use photo large if warranted. Perhaps the best writing in the class. The publication covers many aspects of western horsemanship. GENERAL EXCELLENCE Ann Pringle, Editor Linda Yutzy-2infinity Design, Art Director Published by Pringle Publications Driving Digest blends clean, balanced design with editorial content that is as compelling and informative as it is simply, well, a hoot to read. There's something to be said for the consistency of quality in the writing and editing across multiple editions. The authors and their editors deserve generous praise for their skill in weaving humor, quantitative information, history, wit, and so much more into every piece in the samples provided. While all entries in this class received high marks for their work in meeting the Statement of Purpose, the staff of Driving Digest seems to intuitively recognize that by providing the highest quality editorial content, the magazine is doing precisely that. While the design and layout are solid, it really was the writing and editing that put this entry over the top to earn this well-deserved award. OVERALL PUBLICATION WINNER Driving Digest
