COP Communications’ Computer Graphics World recently won a Silver Editorial Award for its editorial coverage at the American Society of
Business Publication Editors’ (ASBPE) 31th annual Azbee Awards of Excellence.
“This accolade recognizes our dedication to editorial excellence,” says chief editor Karen Moltenbrey.
Computer Graphics World received the award for its July 2008 feature “Labor of Love,” which detailed the creative process behind veteran animation artist Meats Meier’s digital hologram “Animation Mother,” which was the centerpiece of the 2008 SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival.
CGW competed against publications from 19 states in the West division, ASBPE’s largest region. Nationally, more than 2400 submissions were entered in this year’s contest.
This is not the first time CGW has received accolades from ASBPE. Last year, the magazine received a Gold and Bronze National Award, as well as two West Regional Gold Awards. Those are in addition to a number of ASBPE National and Regional Awards CGW received during the past several years, as well as others from the American Business Media, which hosts the prestigious Jesse H. Neal Awards.

ASBPE is widely known for its annual Awards of Excellence competition, which recognizes the best in editorial, design, and online achievement.
