In July, Packaging Digest was recognized with five awards for editorial excellence from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE). The ASBPE program is highly competitive, with entries from hundreds of publications representing business, professional, association and trade magazines.
Packaging Digest won Gold and Silver national awards for its July 2008 and December 2008 cover designs, a Gold regional award for a computer-generated cover design in May 2008, a Silver national award for its Pack Expo Show Daily and a Bronze regional award for a November 2008 article explaining the results of its annual sustainability survey, co-sponsored by the Sustainable Packaging Coalition.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell reportedly once said, “The healthiest competition occurs when above-average people win by putting in above-average effort.”
That's exactly what these awards represent. The staff of Packaging Digest comprises a group of individuals devoted to producing the type of information you need to be successful in your packaging career. We try to listen carefully to what you tell us and then endeavor to present industry information in ways that are useful to you.
It's important that a trade publication like Packaging Digest keeps a finger on the pulse of the industry. In a recent study, readers told us repeatedly that they rely most on Packaging Digest for new packaging ideas and to stay current on the latest industry trends. That's why we work hard to conduct research relevant to our readers and monitor the tradeshows that serve as a wellspring of innovation for packagers.
