SC Magazine is the recipient of five awards for the Northeast region in the 2016 Azbee Awards of Excellence, sponsored by the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).
The editorial and design team of SC Magazine pulled down wins for art direction and editorial excellence across the brand's print and web platforms.
Executive Editor Teri Robinson won a silver award for her cover feature article, "Privacy Matters," in the May 2015 print issue. Robinson was cited for her work probing deep into the activities of our government and law enforcement authorities.
Art Director Michael Strong was recognized with a gold award for his front cover illustration of "Spotlight on Security Planning," a May 2015 special supplementary issue of SC Magazine.
Strong also pulled down a Silver award for his design of "Who Goes There?," an opening spread photo in the June monthly print issue. He supervised the opening photo spread so that the photographer, J.M. Eddins Jr., captured the theme of the story, privacy. And he was recognized for blending all the elements – typography, image, colors – so they pleasingly cohere and cleanly punctuate the story's theme.
Technology Editor Peter Stephenson won a bronze award in the Online Product Review category for his review of OpenDNS Investigate, simultaneously published in the February 2015 print issue. Every month for the past 10 years, Stephenson and his team at the SC Lab have tested security products and services to assess for the magazine. The product reviews section is one of the most popular sections of the magazine, both in print and online.
The entire web news team pulled down a gold designation for its coverage of IT security issues on the daily news site. It was recognized for in-depth, unbiased business and technical content and up-to-the-minute news, comprehensive features, analysis pieces and objective product reviews. The SC staff frequently attends security industry conferences – such as BlackHat, DefCon and RSA – so SC reporters can keep readers informed of breaking news pieces and offer interviews with industry executives. The winning news team is comprised of Teri Robinson, executive editor; Doug Olenick, online editor; Robert Abel, content coordinator; Jeremy Seth Davis, senior reporter; Greg Masters, managing editor; and Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial.
National winners of the 2016 Azbee Awards of Excellence will be announced at the Azbee Awards of Excellence banquet on July 21 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
