CEDAR RAPIDS, IA—The staff at Interiors & Sources is proud to announce that its July/August 2010 issue has won the 2011 Maggie Award in the category of Best Non-Paid Trade magazine with a circulation of less than 50,000. The Maggie Awards—now celebrating its 60th year—are presented annually by the Western Publishing Association (WPA) and recognize editorial excellence in individuals and companies whose work is deemed “The Best in the West” in a wide variety of publishing categories.
“We are honored to be recognized with this prestigious award,” says Robert Nieminen, editor of Interiors & Sources. “As a media brand serving the commercial interior design community, we strive to deliver timely, relevant content to our audience in an attractive and engaging format, and this award affirms our commitment to publishing excellence.”
