Door and Window Market (DWM) magazine won four American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) Mid-Atlantic Regional awards on Wednesday, honoring the staff’s outstanding work in print, video and online.
That includes two regional gold medal winners – editorial director Tara Taffera and video producer Chris Bunn for best webcast series, and DWM editor Trey Barrineau for best news analysis for “Lights Out for Energy Star? It Could Happen …” from the June-July 2017 issue. Those entries are also national ASBPE Award finalists, and they’ll be honored on May 10 during a banquet at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Additionally, DWM won a silver medal for best single-topic coverage by a team for its ongoing reporting on robotics and automation in the door and window industry. Barrineau shared that award with contributing editors Ellen Rogers and Katherine Coig. Taffera won a regional bronze medal in the best online analysis/commentary category for her “Door and Window Musings” blog on dwmmag.com.
