WINNER: Meredith | Family Circle
Reinforcing the old adage that you can’t judge a book by its cover, Family Circle brings its readers so much more than ideas for delicious meals every month.
As the only magazine that talks specifically to parents of tweens and teens, the team felt it was high time to address the topic of the legalization of marijuana in its June issue feature “Going to Pot.” In an epic display of service journalism, the brand’s “Stroke of Genius” feature answers every question you could have about painting your home. The Family Circle reader is the guardian not only of her own health, but also that of her partner, her children and her parents. In “Distant Memories,” the team carefully guides readers through the process of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s. Further demonstrating its impressive range is “Road Trip,” a nine-page compilation of essays and touching images offering a riveting peak into the multilayered moments of family life.
