The Delray Chamber’s Magazines Win Two Charlie Awards
Publications supporting the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce recently received two Charlie Awards at a ceremony during the Florida Magazine Association’s annual conference in Sarasota, Florida. The winners, announced at a banquet at the Westin Sarasota July 16, represent outstanding contributions to magazine writing and design statewide.
The Delray Directory, the official annual publication of the Delray Chamber, won the Silver Award for Best Redesign, while the Delray Destination Guide 2021, which trumpets the city’s tourism assets, secured the Silver for Best New Magazine. Both magazines were edited, designed and published by Passport Publications & Media, the official publishing house of the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, which worked in concert with Chamber leadership to produce these attractive collateral pieces for Delray Beach’s chief voice for the business community.
The redesigned Delray Directory is a comprehensive resource to all of the city’s assets, from health care to local business to the arts. The debut Delray Destination Guide is a focused survey of Delray Beach’s cultural offerings, intended as a handbook for both brief visitors and potential new residents.
“We’re honored the Florida Magazine Association recognized the Chamber and Passport’s joint efforts to not only help us rebrand our signature annual directory—but to invent a new magazine from scratch,” said Stephanie Immelman, president and CEO of the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. “The recognition is a testament to the talent and creativity of all involved, and is further validation that Delray Beach is both a pro-business city and an ascendant destination for tourism, culture and nightlife.”
Founded in 1953, the Florida Magazine Association is a professional community for publishing professionals throughout the state. FMA is the largest state magazine association in the nation, and strives to “promote excellence and the standing of magazines in the Florida publishing industry and “to be the forum for networking, education, recognition, and advocacy for Florida’s magazine industry.”
