APEX awards: The Green Sheet's lucky seven
In the 19th Annual Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX), The Green Sheet Inc. won seven awards overall, including a Grand Award.
The 2007 awards, announced this month by Communications Concepts Inc., were for publications and articles that appeared in 2006. Award winners were chosen from among 4,916 entries.
"I am so proud of everyone at The Green Sheet," said Kate Gillespie, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager. "This would not be possible if we did not have such an astounding team. We constantly strive to achieve excellence."
'The best writing we've seen'
Our Nov. 13, 2006, issue of The Green Sheet (06:11:01) received a Grand Award in the Magazines & Journals category.
"In 90-plus pages twice a month, [this] is some of the best writing we've seen on commercial topics," the APEX judges wrote about The Green Sheet.
"From features to news to interviews, it's right on target with succinct, engaging writing. It's not easy making topics like bank ATM policies or restaurant POS systems interesting, but when you read The Green Sheet, they are."
We were also honored with APEX awards for our writing and editing, in the following categories:
- Regular Departments & Columns: "Insider's report on payments: America the Penniless?" (By Patti Murphy, The Green Sheet, Aug. 28, 2006, issue 06:08:02)
- Writing Series: Inspiration (The Green Sheet, 2006 series)
- Best Rewrites: "Internet Hold 'Em: Winning the online payments game" (The Green Sheet, Aug. 14, 2006, issue 06:08:01).
Web site substance = 2 awards
In addition, our Web site www.greensheet.com was recognized in the Web & Intranet Site Content & Writing category. And our new site www.rodsandwheels.com was honored in the New Web & Intranet Sites category.
"It is especially rewarding to have won an award for RodsandWheels.com," Gillespie said. "Although this site has only been in existence for one year, it is already a premier Web site for car clubs and enthusiasts."
The Green Sheet has won a total of 31 APEX awards, including three grand awards, over the last six years. In 2006, we won a Grand Award for our Web site, GS Online. In 2004, we won a Grand Award for our 20th Anniversary issue (The Green Sheet, Oct. 13, 2003, issue 03:10:01).
"APEX awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the ability to achieve overall communications excellence," wrote John De Lellis, Communications Concepts Editor and Publisher.
