Variety Wins 2019 Eppy Award for Best Digital Magazine
Variety has won two Eppy Awards from Editor & Publisher, including Best Digital Magazine and Best Collaborative Investigative/Enterprise Feature for “American (In)Justice” — a collaboration with fellow PMC property Rolling Stone.
“American (In)Justice” also tied with USA Today’s “Copy, Paste, Legislate” collaboration with The Arizona Republic and the Center for Public Integrity.
Variety has provided insight and analysis into the entertainment industry for more than a century in addition to uniting Hollywood voices behind political and social issues impacting the nation. The “American (In)Justice” collaboration with RollingStone was a special print supplement released in February 2019 that was adapted for the web and examined the bipartisan support for reforming the criminal justice system.
It also invited Ava DuVernay along with two dozen contributors to provide insights and solutions in four areas: seeds of crime, the courtroom, prison and the world ahead for everyone. Jay Penske of Penske Media, owner of Variety and Rolling Stone, and activist Daniel Loeb of Third Point initiated the project.
