Middle Market Growth magazine took home a prestigious 2015 Folio “Ozzie” award in the category of “standalone digital magazine,” winning in this area for the second straight year. The flagship magazine of the Association for Corporate Growth is produced using a digital format seven times each year in partnership with Network Media Partners, a Baltimore-based design and content development firm. Clinical Laboratory News, a publication of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, was this year’s runner up in the category.
MMG was given honorable mention in Folio’s “Eddie” awards in the category of “association news coverage” for its story “The Alchemists,” featured on the cover of the 2015 January/February edition. The article, written by MMG Associate Editor Kathryn Mulligan, profiles Biogenic Reagents, a private equity-backed company in northern Michigan using new technology to turn paper pulp and other wood waste into carbon for water and air cleanup. The winner in this category was onEarth, the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Council, for its story, “The Gulf Disaster Five Years Later.”
For more than 20 years, Folio magazine’s Eddie & Ozzie awards have recognized excellence in magazine editorial and design across a wide variety of industry sectors. This year, a panel of more than 300 judges narrowed 2,800 entries into a pool of about 1,000 finalists. In total, more than 250 awards were given out across 33 categories.
In October, Middle Market Growth—part of ACG’s suite of MMG publications— published its 23rd issue.
