Des Moines, IA. (August 11, 2022) – Two Active Interest Media publications were named as finalists of the 2022 FOLIO: Eddie & Ozzie Awards. The WRITER’S DIGEST Interview: Marlon James (from Writer’s Digest March/April 2022 issue) and LOG & TIMBER HOME LIVING’s 2022 Log & Timber Favorite Homes issue were recognized as finalists.
“In a digital age, content is everywhere. Individuals have more options when it comes to the content they consume on a daily basis,” said Bill Amstutz, Publisher, FOLIO. “The Eddie & Ozzie Awards place the spotlight on leading editorial and design talents for their exceptional work. They are creators of the most thoughtful, in-depth and engaging content that breakthrough the noise and their communities are highly engaged. The Eddie & Ozzie Awards is a celebration of their exceptional talent and often inspire innovation in media.”
“The Log & Timber Home Favorites special issue is a concept that we haven’t seen before,” said Donna Peak, Editorial Director of Active Interest Media’s Log/Timber/Cabin brands and Editor-in-Chief of Log & Timber Home Living magazine. “Instead of our print magazine dictating the content we share online, we flipped the script, using our extensive digital analytics to influence the magazine. The result is our entire web and social media universe in print form. We’re thrilled to be recognized by Folio: for this new idea and honored to be among such esteemed company.”
“While each Writer’s Digest interview aims to dig into the craft of how authors write their books, Jera Brown’s interview with Marlon James took that goal to the next level,” said Writer’s Digest editor-in-chief, Amy Jones. “By digging into the philosophical reasons behind James’ stylistic choices, Brown was able to shed new light on the Booker Prize-winning author’s stunning contribution to the contemporary literary canon. Our thanks to FOLIO: for this great honor.”
