Baltimore Magazine Wins Six Folio Awards

We earned nods for editorial, design, and digital coverage at the annual magazine industry awards in New York City.

This year, Baltimore magazine was beyond honored to be nominated for a whopping 13 Folio Awards, which recognize the best editorial content, design work, and digital products in the magazine field. On Wednesday, October 11, media colleagues from around the country gathered at a luncheon at the Hilton Midtown in New York City to celebrate the winners of the Eddie (editorial) and Ozzie (design) awards.

Baltimore ended up winning in a total of six categories, including best City & Regional Full Issue for our July 2016 edition, which featured a cover story on the 25 best crab houses, our feature on the Chesapeake Bay’s venerable water women, the ultimate pet guide, and our summer Home section. We beat out some serious competition in fellow regional magazines like Hour Detroit, Houstonia, Mpls. St. Paul, and Time Out New York to name a few.

We also were thrilled to win Editorial Team of the Year, which was an award pitting us against national publications like Turf Magazine, Time Out North America, and Success Magazine.

The magazine’s digital team was proud to accept an award for best City & Regional Newsletters, for our food-and-drink related emails that go out to subscribers on a daily basis. For the third year in a row, also won for best City & Regional website overall.

In the design department, the magazine was also excited to take home the award for best City & Regional feature design for “The Essential Crab House Guide,” beating out other food features from great publications including New Jersey Monthly and Southern Living. In addition, Baltimore Bride took home the award for best design of a City & Regional Supplement for the second year in a row.
