Throughout its eight-year history, DC Velocity has received a steady stream of awards for journalism and design. And the beat of recognition goes on.
On Aug. 4, DC Velocity and its sister publication CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly received gold "Azbee" awards at the American Society of Business Publication Editors' (ASBPE) 33rd annual awards banquet. Agile Business Media LLC publishes DC Velocity and jointly owns Supply Chain Quarterly with the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP).
DC Velocity's monthly "Outbound" column, written by Group Editorial Director Mitch Mac Donald with Executive Editor Karen Bachrach, received a first-place award for best regular staff-written column for publications with more than $2 million in annual revenue. Outbound appears on the last page of every issue of the magazine as well as at dcvelocity.com.
The "Perspective" column written by James Cooke, editor of CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly, won a gold Azbee award for best regular staff-written column for publications under $2 million in revenue. The Quarterly also received the first-place award in the special supplement category for magazines under $2 million in revenue for its "2010 Special Issue: The State of Logistics." Cooke, Managing Editor Toby Gooley, Associate Managing Editor Susan Lacefield, and Director of Creative Services Keisha Capitola were cited for their work on the special issue.
"Amidst all the change in the business world generally, and in the B2B publishing space specifically, a few things do remain constant. One of those constants is the importance of serving readers and advertisers from a foundation built upon the highest-value content available," said Mac Donald. "To be recognized as having the best content, not just in the logistics and supply chain sectors but in all sectors, is heartening. It reminds us that quality and timeliness of content remains the most important tenet of our business."
