Glossy Talk: MONUMENT wins gold Folio Award

After celebrating its 100th edition in November last year, Australian architecture and design title MONUMENT has gone on to win a prestigious gold Folio Award

The title's May edition took out the top award in the Consumer, Enthusiasts/Hobbyists (Full Issue) category, one of five awards won by Pacific+, the custom and corporate division of Pacific Magazines.

Held in New York City this week, the Folio Awards (aka The 2010 Eddie and Ozzie Awards) recognise editorial and design excellence across the global magazine publishing spectrum.

“Being honoured on the global stage shows our magazines can compete with the world’s best," said Georgina Brujic, Managing Director of Pacific+ Custom. "A number of our titles, including Weight Watchers and Virgin Blue Voyeur have been recognised in previous awards. We are especially proud to receive international acclaim from the Folio awards as further testament to how our magazines just keep getting better and better.”

In the Consumer Cover Awards category Vintage Magazine took out an award for the Best Design for a New Magazine/Consumer title and Best Overall Design, Consumer.

WOW! for Monument winning the Folio award. It's probably a magazine I'd see somewhere in the newsagent or perhaps an art gallery which was hip to this field (especially one of Contemporary Art).

As for Vintage Magazine, there are probably about 3 T's in the weblink.

The handmade drafting and the photography are exemplary. I especially enjoyed Titans and Indian Notebook from the second issue (deuxieme).
