Newsweek, a premier weekly news magazine owned by IBT Media, has announced that it has won photography and illustration awards from both the National Press Photographers Association and The Society of Publication Designers.
The Society of Publication Designers awarded Newsweek with two merit awards in their Pub 50 competition which recognizes prestigious editorial design.
The National Press Photographers Associated also awarded Newsweek with five awards in their Best of Photojournalism Awards which attract the most talented professionals in still, video, multimedia and editing each year:
“Magazines, like news sites, have to keep iterating to survive. When we returned to print as a premium product, with better paper stock and a higher price tag, we also thought it was time for an aesthetic makeover,” said Jim Impoco, Editor in Chief of Newsweek. “We like to showcase our design and photography chops, and are delighted and humbled by the recognition Newsweek’s efforts has received from its peers in those worlds. A visual scoop can be every bit as compelling as a text scoop.”
