The FILM’d video newscast, produced by USGlass magazine/USGNN.com’s sister publication, Window Film magazine, has been named the gold winner for the prestigious 2013 Azbee Award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors’ (ASBPE) for the second consecutive year. Window Film received the national award for the Webcast Series category.
“We are so pleased to be named the winner for this award,” says Debra Levy, publisher of Window Film. “Our staff put a great deal of work into providing this newscast for our industry, so it is nice to see our efforts recognized.”
“It is such a compliment to have the opportunity to compete alongside the best the media services/publishing industry has to offer,” adds Holly Biller, vice president of media services. “We are simply thrilled to have our peers recognize our newscast efforts for FILM’d two consecutive years in a row. Our editorial and digital media services team collaborate and then produce what we think is top-quality content in an aesthetically pleasing format, so it’s incredibly validating to win the newscast series Azbee and find that our colleagues agree.”
Editor Casey Neeley and video producer Chris Bunn were recognized for the achievement at the 2013 ASBPE National Conference held in Chicago July 26. Neeley is also a contributing editor for USGlass magazine/USGNN.com.
The national award is incredibly competitive as entrants are compared against a variety of business-to-business publications spanning various industries from major metro areas such as New York, Atlanta and Washington D.C., as well as across the nation.
FILM’d is just one of many newscast series produced by Key Communications Inc. Other web series include USGNN.com™, glassBYTEs.com™ and dwmmag.com.
