TransWorld Media Receives Gold Ink And FOLIO Ozzie Award Recognition

Carlsbad, CA—TransWorld Media is proud to announce its most recent honors recognizing design excellence for its “30 Years Of TransWorld Media” 2012 media book and Ride BMX magazine feature titled "Two Worlds Apart" from the July 2012 issue. The industry's most prestigious print competitions, The Gold Ink Awards from Printing Impressions magazine and The Eddie And Ozzie Awards from FOLIO magazine, both give powerful recognition to magazine brands and print providers worldwide. In years past, TransWorld Media has received numerous awards for its brands, including TransWorld SNOWboarding and TransWorld Business. 

This year, TransWorld's 2012 media book titled “30 Years Of TransWorld Media” is a finalist for Best Media Kit in the B-to-B category of FOLIO magazine's Ozzie Awards and recently took home the bronze at The Gold Ink Awards—both proud accomplishments for TransWorld Media as it embarks on its 30th year in existence as the number one most innovative and relevant action sports media brand in the world. TransWorld Media Creative Director Marc Hostetter, who led the charge on the overall design and creative direction of the book and has been with TransWorld for over 20 years comments, "Doing things 'the TransWorld way' for our audience has always been the primary focus, so to receive this kind of recognition from the publishing industry, it is a tremendous honor."

Hostetter was the lead designer of the Ride BMX July 2012 issue feature "Two Worlds Apart," also a finalist this year for FOLIO magazine's Ozzie award category of Best Feature Design for consumer magazines under 100,000 circulation. This is another big win for TransWorld as the Ride BMX brand also hit a milestone this year, celebrating 20 years in existence, in addition to going through a recent magazine redesign.

FOLIO will be handing out the bronze, silver and gold award winners during an awards luncheon set for October 31 as part of FOLIO MediaNext in New York City. Stay tuned to folioawards.com to find out how each of the finalists placed.
