New Media has closed off the company's most successful awards season to date, with a gold award at New York's prestigious Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Awards.
The 2014 Winners list is comprised of the biggest and most influential titles across the entire publishing spectrum. From B2B, consumer, association/non-profit, regional to apps and websites, the Folio: Eddie & Ozzies honours all brands that are winning in magazine media editorial and design.
