New-look THR takes top honor at FOLIO nods


The April relaunch of The Hollywood Reporter has been awarded the gold prize in the best redesign, B-to-B category at the 2008 Eddie and Ozzie Awards.

The winners were unveiled this week in Chicago at the annual FOLIO show. The awards recognize excellence in magazine editorial and design. James Reyman of New York-based Reyman Studio, who worked closely with the editorial team at the paper, was the design leader for the THR relaunch.

"We are gratified that FOLIO recognized our efforts to rethink the 79-year-old institution that is The Hollywood Reporter and to make it a livelier, sharper, more reader-friendly experience," THR editor Elizabeth Guider said.

This year's FOLIO competition drew 2,800 entries, and more than 100 expert judges spent weeks evaluating the entries and selecting the winners. There were 177 gold winners in all.

THR sister publication Billboard also won gold in all three of the categories in which it was nominated.

FOLIO is a monthly magazine devoted to the magazine and publishing industries. (partialdiff)
