VT SKI + RIDE Recognized for General Excellence

VT SKI + RIDE RECOGNIZED FOR GENERAL EXCELLENCE, 

FINALIST FOR 9 AWARDS AT NEW ENGLAND NEWSPAPER AND PRESS ASSOCIATION ANNUAL GALA

Middlebury VT — Vermont Ski + Ride Magazine was honored to be  named one of the top three specialty publications in New England at the New England Newspaper and Press Association’s annual awards dinner on February 24 in Boston. The quarterly magazine was third in General Excellence, the highest honor category, for specialty publications.

Interesting stories, stunning design and photography and useful information packed into this magazine. If I skied in Vermont I would have to get this magazine and look forward to its arrival,” the judges wrote.  The category competition was stiff: The Providence Business Journal won General Excellence and Worcester Magazine, was second.

In addition, Vermont Ski + Ride Magazine received five first-place awards. Staff writer Emma Cotton won Best Columnist for her “Après” columns Why Cider Houses Rule  and 8 Vermont Vineyards To Visit . Art director David Pollard and staff won for Best Cover and for Headline Writing. Photographer Peter Cirillis’s shot of a skier launching through the woods was named Best Sports Photo and Jeff Curtes’ image of Jake Burton Carpenter  was named Best Pictorial Photo.

Best Cover Award went to this issue, designed by David Pollard. Photo is of Brooks Curran at Mad River Glen, photographed by his dad, Dennis Curran.

The magazine also was a runner-up  for Arts & Entertainment coverage and Personality Profile in specialty publications.  In total, the quarterly magazine was a finalist for 9 awards.

“It’s wonderful to be recognized for General Excellence against such well-established magazines in big markets,” said editor Lisa Lynn. “But the best thing is to see young people such as our former intern (now staff writer), Emma Cotton, win Best Columnist and Peter Cirilli win Best Sports Photo against some tough competition.”
