Woodworker's Journal magazine, the flagship publication of Rockler Press, a division of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware, has just won many prestigious awards from the Minnesota Magazine and Publications Association (MMPA). Woodworker's Journal won three gold, a silver and three bronze awards in categories that ranged from how-to articles and ongoing columns to overall excellence. The MMPA Excellence Awards were announced on November 13.

Woodworker's Journal publisher Rob Johnstone said, "I am thankful and very pleased that we were honored by our peers in such a meaningful way. My staff is hugely talented and works exceedingly hard, so from that context, I guess I can't say that I am overly surprised by the awards. What I can say that I am very proud of them and the quality work that they put out. Good work team, you are the best!"

Judges' comments for the Woodworker's Journal winning entries praised them as being "entertaining," as well as appropriate and useful for the intended audience.

Woodworker's Journal is a long standing publication that has been providing content for woodworkers and DIYers since 1977. Publishing six issues annually plus four seasonal special interest publications, it is an industry pioneer in digital publishing and enjoys a leading presence in social media, with many dedicated followers and contributors in the greater woodworking community.

The 2014 MMPA Excellence Awards honored entries published between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014.
