Convenience Store News Named Finalist for Editorial Excellence Awards
JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Convenience Store News, the industry's No. 1 source for news, information and analysis, has been nominated as a finalist in two categories in FOLIO:'s 2011 Eddie and Ozzie Awards program.
The first nomination is for Best Full Issue in the Business-to-Business/Retail category for CSNews' October 2010 issue. This 200-plus page issue was notable for its exclusive and in-depth articles on major retailers such as Sheetz, Cumberland Farms, QuikTrip, and Wawa, as well as topical reports on the latest technology innovations, product category developments and consumer trends impacting the convenience industry.
The second nomination is for Best Single Story, also in the Business-to-Business/Retail category, for the October 2010 cover story entitled, "Constant Reinvention Propels Sheetz." This 12-page cover story package by senior editor Barb Grondin Francella provided readers with an inside look at one of the most forward-thinking convenience store chains.
The two CSNews nominations are among approximately 400 finalists selected from a field of more than 2,000 entries. The annual awards program -- spanning all corners of the magazine publishing industry -- recognizes the very best in editorial and design. It's the largest and most inclusive awards program of its kind in the industry.
FOLIO: will name the bronze, silver and gold award winners during an awards luncheon set for Nov. 1, as part of the FOLIO: Show in New York City.
This is not the first time that CSNews has been selected for honors by the FOLIO: awards program. In 2009, the magazine won three awards: the Gold Ozzie Award for Best Use of Illustration, the Silver Eddie Award for Best Full Issue, and the Bronze Eddie Award for Best Retail Website.
Last year, CSNews took home a Silver Azbee Award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors and an Honorable Mention Tabbie Award from the Trade Association Business Publications International (TABPI).
In 2008, CSNews won the Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Award for Best Single Issue of the year.
