A big congratulations to the Association for Corporate Growth, winner of the bronze award for a monthly professional society magazine in the 2013 Association TRENDS All-Media Contest! ACG is a valued client of Network Media Partners and we are proud to work with the association staff to produce the all-digital magazine, Middle Market Growth.
In critiquing Middle Market Growth, the judges wrote that ACG “has more than succeeded in creating a cutting edge and interactive digital title. There are clear distinctions between each section. There are interactive buttons and embedded videos throughout the title. The creative team has come up with clever names for each section. There is excellent reader engagement throughout the issue along with links back to the main website. The design is easy to read on a computer screen and on a tablet. Other associations should use this title when they decide to create a digital only publication.”
Middle Market Growth launched in April 2013 and is published 10 times per year, with each issue focusing on the achievements of ACG’s membership. The association will be honored for this award, as well as its gold award for the InterGrowth 2013 Onsite Guide, at a luncheon Thursday in Washington, D.C., celebrating all the winners. Members of the Network Media Partners staff who work on the publication also will attend to celebrate ACG’s accomplishments.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to help ACG celebrate this achievement. With less than a full year of publishing Middle Market Growth under our belts, the magazine is everything we envisioned it to be: a valued member and community touchpoint that keeps ACG on the cutting edge of publishing,” said Network Media Creative Director Jen Smith.

Two of Network Media’s client publications have been nominated as finalists for Folio Eddie & Ozzie Awards. We are thrilled to share this great news and to celebrate the nominations with our clients:
Middle Market Growth magazine is a finalist in the Eddie category for Best Digital Edition
T+D magazine app is a finalist in the Ozzie category for Best App
The nominations are a reflection of the great partnerships between Network Media and our publisher partners, ASTD and the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG). The creative work from each project team was selected from more than 2,300 entries.
Network Media’s creative team has leveraged two different publishing platforms to produce these publications. T+D magazine app showcases design skill and interactive abilities, specifically the translation and enhancement of a traditional print magazine for an interactive experience. Middle Market Growth, an editorial nomination, was created with a digital first, digital only mindset. This approach is part of ACG’s thought leadership for its industry.
These projects are up against some serious competition (see the list of finalists here) and we are excited and proud that the work of our editorial and design groups has been recognized in this way.
The adage is true, it’s an honor just to be nominated! Even so, fingers are crossed for a big win (or two) at the event this Thursday in New York City. I’ll be live tweeting from the event if you would like to follow along.
