Vicon Publishing, Inc. announces that Forensic Magazine®, the source for technology, trends, products and solutions for forensic professionals, has received a 2006 "Tabbie" award for editorial excellence in a contest organized by Trade Association Business Press International (TABPI). "Life in a Disaster Morgue", by Douglas Page, won an Honorable Mention in the Feature Article category.
With more than 800 entries received from North American, European, and Asian publications, competition for the 2006 "Tabbie Awards" was particularly strong this year, according to TABPI. Complete results, along with selected comments from the judges and samples of the winning entries, are available at http://www.tabpi.org.
"It's always been important to us to provide our readers with relevant, real-world information in a practical and useful manner," said Vicon Publishing president Patrick Murphy, who is also the publisher of Forensic Magazine. "We are happy to have our efforts consistently recognized not only by our subscribers and advertisers, but also by trade organizations such as TABPI."
"We are especially proud to be recognized for an article which highlights the special group of forensic professionals who left their own lives behind to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina," said Christine Janson, Chief Editor of Forensic Magazine. "Congratulations to Doug Page who delicately covered the technical, physical, and emotional challenges they faced."
It is the second year that Vicon Publishing has participated in the annual competition, as well as the second year in which Forensic Magazine has been recognized. (In 2005, "Chemical Safety in the Forensic Lab, Parts I & II", by Vince McLeod, CIH and Glenn Ketcham, CIH, won an Honorable Mention in the Regular Column category.)
