Elliott Davis BRAINTRUST Magazine wins top magazine awards

The Elliott Davis custom magazine is recognized by publishing industry

BRAINTRUST Magazine, developed for Elliott Davis, LLC by Jack Bacot, has won three top awards and three honorable mentions in the coveted Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Awards. BRAINTRUST is a bi-annual, business-to-business magazine developed to inform by featuring a mix of business articles, profiles and general interests on related topics including tax reform, leadership, cybersecurity and additional business centric content.

BRAINTRUST won the top awards for Best B2B New Magazine; Best B2B Design, Single Magazine Issue; Best B2B Feature-Fly Me To The Moon, Charlie Duke. Honorable mentions were B2B Feature-Gaining A Mental Edge; B2B Feature-A Tale of Two Journeys; and Editorial Content for New Magazine Launch.

“The Eddie & Ozzie Awards recognize the pillars of magazine and digital publishing—outstanding journalism and content, design, and the talented people who produce it,” said Danielle Sikes, associate publisher at Folio:. “No other program celebrates a wider range of publications. Whether it’s a niche magazine with an audience of 5,000, or an online trade publication, or a mass consumer brand that reaches tens of millions of readers on multiple platforms, these awards shine a light on all their brilliant work.”

BRAINTRUST was produced by the team of Jack Bacot, editor-in-chief, Ronnie Musslewhite, managing editor and Rob Hewitt, designer. “It’s a honor to be recognized by your peers in the publishing industry,” said Bacot. “To be compared to many of the leading publications in the industry and win these awards is a testament to our strong team and support from Elliott Davis.”

A prestigious panel of judges narrowed the thousands of Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Award entries received this year to a list of roughly 300 winners in multiple editorial, design and digital categories. The annual awards program, recognizing the very best in editorial and design, is the most comprehensive of its kind in the industry.
