Scotsman Guide, the leading resource for mortgage originators, has announced that it recently won three awards from the American Society of Business and Publication Editors (ASBPE), as well as two Apex Awards.
The national mortgage magazine was recently recognized by the American Society of Business and Publication Editors (ASBPE) with gold, silver and bronze Azbee Awards. The publication received a gold for "Best Original Web Database" for its online wholesale and commercial mortgage lender search engines; a silver for "Best Department (West Region)" for its monthly Spotlight feature; and a bronze for "Best Opening Page/Spread -- Illustration," also for "Doing Business in the Information Age" from the March 2007 commercial edition. The winning Spotlight departments appeared in the September, October and November 2007 issues of Scotsman Guide's residential edition and were penned by editor Tony Stasiek and 2007 editorial intern Kirsten Terry.
Scotsman Guide picked up the ASBPE awards at the 30th annual Azbee Awards of Excellence celebration in Kansas City, Mo., on July 24.
In addition to its ASBPE awards, Scotsman Guide also recently received Apex Awards for Publication Excellence for "Best New Web and Intranet Site" for its Scotsman Guide Loan Post online feature, as well as for "Best Illustration and Typography" for an article spread design. The winning article design, designed by Scotsman Guide senior designer Deborah Richardson with an illustration by contributing illustrator Keith Negley, appeared in Scotsman Guide's March 2007 commercial edition for an article titled "Doing Business in the Information Age."
Along with winning the Apex Award, Scotsman Guide's Loan Post also recently received its 100,000th lender reply for the commercial Loan Post, a tool through which mortgage brokers can post their loan scenarios and receive replies from mortgage lenders.
