IDEA’s editorial team has garnered two more Western Publications Association (WPA) “Maggie” Awards! This makes eight WPA trophies that IDEA publications have received since 2004. The coveted Maggie awards are known as the “Oscars” of the periodicals publishing world.

The July–August 2012 30th anniversary issue of IDEA Fitness Journal took top honors in the Best Special Theme issue category. The special holiday issue of IDEA’s newest publication, IDEA Food and Nutrition Tips, received the award for Best Supplemental Issue.

“Our editorial vision is reinforced each time we win an industry honor,” said Sandy Todd Webster, editor in chief of IDEA publications. “Recognition of excellence from our publishing industry peers with top prizes in these categories is a terrific honor that rewards the hard work of a very committed and dedicated team.

“Eight Maggies in 9 years highlights the consistency of quality and excellence in the work produced by each of the editors and graphic artists. It’s a privilege to lead such a talented team!”
