Landscape Architecture Magazine Announced as Finalist in Five Categories -- 2012 Eddie and Ozzie Awards


The American Society of Landscape Architects is pleased to congratulate Landscape Architecture Magazine for being named a five-time finalist in the prestigious Eddie and Ozzie Awards, as announced by FOLIO: Magazine. The Eddie and Ozzie Awards is the largest awards competition in magazine publishing. The Eddies recognize editorial excellence; the Ozzies recognize excellence in magazine design.

LAM was selected as a 2012 Eddie Award finalist in one Association/Nonprofit category:

  • Best Full Issue, September 2011. This special issue focused on September 11 memorials.

LAM was selected four times as a 2012 Ozzie Award finalist in the following Association/Nonprofit categories:

  • Best Cover: August 2011 issue. The cover depicts the Lake Whitney Water Treatment Plant, located in New Haven, Connecticut, and designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.
  • Best Feature Design: February 2012 issue, "Morocco's Spell" and "Skatepark Unintended" 
  • Best Use of Photography: February 2012 issue, “Morocco’s Spell,” Michael Moran, photographer, and Chris McGee, LAM art director.

The FOLIO: team, along with a panel of industry leaders, narrowed the more than 2,000 entries received this year to a list of roughly 400 finalists. FOLIO: will hand out the bronze, silver and gold award winners for each category during an awards luncheon on October 31st as part of FOLIO: MediaNext in New York City.

Congratulations to the entire LAM staff and the magazine’s contributors, and especially to Chris McGee for his tireless excellence in designing the magazine—the recognition for him is well earned.
