An­glers Jour­nal won an Ed­die award for best full is­sue in the En­thu­si­ast/hobby cat­e­gory in the an­nual Fo­lio: jour­nal­ism and mag­a­zine-de­sign con­test. The award was pre­sented at a din­ner in New York City in Oc­to­ber.

AJ won for the Fall 2017 is­sue, which was pub­lished with dif­fer­ent cov­ers for sub­scribers and news­stand read­ers. The sub­scriber cover shows a col­lec­tion of old rods that be­longed to a won­der­ful fish­er­man who had passed away. We told the story of the man’s fish­ing life through his tackle. The im­age was so strik­ing that we didn’t want to put words all over it.

The other cover is a black-and-white photo of a striped bass dor­sal fin. With plenty of room for cover words without tak­ing away from the pho­to­graph, it proved to be a strong news­stand cover.

An­glers Jour­nal has won sev­eral Fo­lio: awards since it de­buted five years ago. We’re proud to have such a tal­ented team that puts to­gether the mag­a­zine.
