AccessWorld Earns Eddie Award Honorable Mention

Date: 12/9/2018

Much has happened in this past year of technology, from smaller changes to hardware and software, to exciting new accessible apps and advances in vision research. Staying abreast and covering such changes and advances is, of course, what the AccessWorld team is all about, so it was especially rewarding to receive our fourth consecutive Honorable Mention Eddie award at the 2018 Folio Awards in the Digital, Non-profit, Standalone Magazine category.

For more than 20 years, the Eddie & Ozzie Awards have recognized excellence in magazine editorial and design across all sectors of the publishing industry. This year, a panel of judges narrowed over 2,500 entries into a pool of roughly 800 finalists. In total, 263 awards were given out across 33 categories. The awards are broken into four main categories: Eddies and Eddies Digital for the best in print and digital editorial, and Ozzies and Ozzies Digital for the best in magazine and website design.

The Folio: Eddie and Ozzie Awards celebrate excellence in editorial and design across multiple markets. This awards program is the only one of its kind to honor both magazine and digital design and journalism in the consumer, business-to-business, association, regional, and non-profit sectors. Winners and honorable mentions were recognized in October in New York City at a celebratory luncheon at The Folio: Show held at the Midtown Hilton.

The AccessWorld team works hard to bring information to our readers, and we are honored and humbled to be recognized again this year. Here at AccessWorld, we do our best to keep our readers updated and informed, and the team certainly hopes our readers have enjoyed reading the publication and have personally benefited from our coverage of the technology and issues most relevant to people with visual impairments.

When award winners include the likes of outlets such as ESPN the Magazine, the AARP Magazine, and The Atlantic, it is gratifying to know we are in good company.
