Technology magazines may be increasingly looked at as secondary vehicles for serving their markets by their own publishers, but IDG’s Computerworld took top honors in the over $2 million in annual revenue category while Haymarket’s SC Magazine (covering IT security) won the under $2 million in annual revenue category in the Magazine of the Year competition sponsored by the American Society of Business Publication Editors.
Judges cited both winners for clean design, use of illustrations, easy pullout data and coverage of timely issues.
Other finalists in the $2 million or over category included Architect, Associations Now, Bloomberg Businessweek (honorable mention), Building Design & Construction, CFO, HR Magazine, Overdrive, Restaurants & Institutions and Security Management (honorable mention).
In the under $2 million category, finalists included Chain Leader (honorable mention), Emergency Management (honorable mention), Exhibitor Magazine, Move, Oregon Business, Residential Architect, Strategy + Business, Vineyard & Winery Management and Wearables.
ASBPE says it plans to name this year’s winner of the Stephen Barr Award for special excellence in feature writing during an August 17 ceremony in Kansas City, Missouri.
