Edible Communities Reveals Winners of the 11th Annual EDDY Awards

Neww York, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2016

Edible Communities has just announced the winners of their annual EDDY Awards in both Critics’ and Readers’ Choice categories. The EDDY’s showcase the very best content produced by the organization’s award-winning family of 90+ Edible publications, including profiles of local farmers and fishermen, artisans and chefs, eye-opening coverage of crucial social issues, exceptional magazine covers, illustrations, and photography.

The public voted online for the Readers’ Choice winners while an independent panel of judges decided Critics’ Choice winners. In results announced yesterday, 25 publishers from across the US and Canada took home top honors in 6 categories: Best Feature, Best Imagery, Best Recipes, Best Story, Best Digital, and Best Issue.

The EDDY Award for Best Special Issue went to Edible New Orleans for its Makin’ Groceries Issue. Judging the category was Lisa McManus, an executive editor at Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country magazines: “This cover image is both enticing and forbidding; it’s stark and dramatic. It reminds me of paintings by Caravaggio…On the inside, unlike some of the competitors, this issue’s theme of “Makin’ Groceries” was very consistently carried out throughout the issue, and it was done in a fresh and authentic way… Fantastic job.”
