We get a lot of our best ideas from our readers, which is how we're able to serve the market better than anyone else. That's how it should be, and the ASBPE could tell how in-touch we are with our audience.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 24, 2010
PRO AV, the leading industry publication serving AV professionals, is a finalist for one national and three regional awards from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).
"It's the second year in a row that the ASBPE has honored us with multiple awards," said PRO AV Editor Brad Grimes. "We're especially proud that our feature on fiber-optic technology was recognized as one of the best technical business-to-business articles in the entire nation.
"We get a lot of our best ideas from our readers, which is how we're able to serve the market better than anyone else," Grimes continued. "I'm in fact proud to say PRO AV readers were responsible for most of these award-winning ideas. That's how it should be, and the ASBPE could tell how in-touch we are with our audience."
The Azbee Awards of Excellence honor business-to-business magazines on both national and regional levels. Editorial awards are judged on the quality of writing, reporting and editing. Design awards are judged on the layout and composition of the publication, and how easily it communicates useful information to the reader.
PRO AV is a finalist in the following categories:
- Technical Article, "Fiber: Truth or Fiction?" Sept./Oct. 2009
- Case History, "A True Test of Green AV," a U.S. Green Building Council installation story, Nov./Dec. 2009
- Opening Spread/Spread-Photo, "Say What?" about intelligibility in mass notification systems, Nov./Dec. 2009
- Regular Column, Contributed for Pete Putman's Parallax View
"This is a great and prestigious recognition of the collective efforts of PRO AV's fine editorial team,” says Jon Yoffie, Associate Publisher of PRO AV. “With so many of our readers facing tremendous challenges in the current business environment, PRO AV's mission to deliver ‘Real World Solutions,’ has never been more important. We are very pleased that our journalism peers recognize the effort required to deliver on that promise."
In 2009, PRO AV took home three regional silver awards in the categories of Best How-To Article, Best Original Research, and Front Cover – Computer Generated.
Winners of the 2010 Gold, Silver, and Bronze national and regional Azbee Awards will be announced in July.
