Variety Wins Two Maggie Awards from Western Publishing Assn.

Variety was honored with two awards at the Western Publishing Assn.’s 64th annual Maggie Awards.

Variety received trophies for its December “Sony Under Siege” issue, focused on the Sony hacking crisis, in the special interest/consumer category; and for the Artisans video “The Dangerous Art of Aerial Cinematography,” in the category best use of video in editorial short form/trade & consumer.

Co-editor-in-chief Claudia Eller accepted the print award and Artisans video producer-writer David S. Cohen accepted the video award.

Eller said “Two years ago we successfully relaunched Variety as a beautiful magazine and redesigned website. I’m so proud of our team and the fact that we’re celebrating our 110th anniversary this year.”

Cohen told the gathering at the LAX Marriott, “We just started doing these last summer and we really took to heart the idea that the nomination is the real honor, so to actually win one of these is really great.” He thanked supervising producer-cameraman Preston Northrop for making him look good, “which is not an easy thing to do.”

The Western Publishing Assn. covers magazines based in 24 states in the Western U.S. It honors print and digital media in over 100 categories.
