Folio magazine has announced the finalists for its annual Eddie and Ozzie awards. (The Eddies are sort of unusual -- they measure a magazine's performance against its own mission statement. The Ozzies are for magazine design.)
Longtime readers of this blog won't be surprised by the results. Some of my favorite magazines have done well in the Folio contests. CMO, for example, which may be the best overall publication in B2B, picked up four Ozzie nominations and one Eddie. CFO magazine, which I also adore, picked up three Ozzie nominations. And Millimeter, which has made some interesting moves on the Web, picked up an Eddie nomination.
But the biggest winner appears to be Bloomberg Wealth Manager, which picked up five Ozzie nominations.
Congratulations to all.
(DISCLOSURE: I do some consulting with Chief Marketer, which is owned by the recently sold Primedia Business. Chief Marketer competes with CMO. Millimeter is also a Primedia property. And although I don't work with that magazine now, I'm the former vice president of online content for Primedia Business. In addition, I used to work for Bloomberg, but did not work with Bloomberg Wealth Manager.)
