Orlando Magazine Wins 11 Awards for Excellence

Recognition from Florida Magazine Association includes honors for design, writing, photography, online video.




 

Orlando magazine has won 11 awards from the Florida Magazine Association in the group’s annual Charlie Awards competition.

The honors included two first-place Charlie Awards for illustration and cover design for the March 2017 Community Angels cover and the May 2017 Dining Awards front, with the magazine sweeping the category for Best Traditional Illustration. Writing awards went to Michael McLeod for “The Healing,’’ a look at the Orlando community one year after the Pulse tragedy, and to dining critic Joseph Hayes for his stories and reviews in the Dine section. Photo editor Roberto Gonzalez won a Silver Award for his photo of a local butcher, while designer Denis Vargas garnered a top award for his design of a Burger Battle advertising promotion. An online video of poet Billy Collins also received a Bronze Award.

Recognizing achievements by Florida magazines since 1957, FMA's annual Charlie Awards competition honors publishers, writers, editors, artists, photographers, printers, marketers and others as the best among their peers in scores of categories. Juried by recognized out-of-state magazine and newspaper professionals, and college journalism professors, hundreds of entries vie for first, second and third place awards—Charlie, Silver and Bronze.

The awards were presented Friday night at the FMA’s annual Charlie Awards banquet, held at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek.
