We’re excited to share our good news. Virginia Magazine is a finalist for nine national editorial and design awards in publishing’s big “Folio: Show” in New York this October.

Leading the list of honors is Steve Hedberg, finalist for Art Director of the Year. It’s one of the top prizes in the renowned competition, a general award that sweeps across all categories of magazines. This year’s other finalists include the art director of Time.

Virginia Magazine’s other honors fall within the Association/Non-Profit designation. “Nevermore,” our Spring 2019 cover story on unsolved thefts from the Alderman Library vault, made the finals for three awards: Investigative Journalism, Single Article and Cover Design.

Virginia Magazine’s Winter 2018 Bicentennial Special Issue made the cut for two awards: Full Issue and Overall Design. Also in that issue, our “Hat Tip to UVA” tribute made the finals for Essay and Criticism.

Continuing the strong showing in design, Virginia Magazine made the finals for the past year’s Redesign and for Overall Art Direction.

This is our second year participating in the Folio: competition, known as the Eddie & Ozzie Awards, where last year “Getting a Read on Ryan” (Winter 2017) won an Eddie for best Profile or Q&A.

Wish us luck in October!
