Judge’s Comments: TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) International Association’s TESOL Connections e-newsletter uses a smart layout, clear, easy-to-understand language and interactivity elements. The design appears almost 3-D in the masthead, and while there are multiple voices in the newsletter, there’s terrific consistency in writing style. Each article contains information to download or items to click, drawing reader interest. Social media elements are present but don’t overwhelm. There’s also a mobile version.

2012 Silver Award: Checkpoint July/August 2012 Issue

Monthly Newsletter or Communication

Checkpoint July/August 2012 Issue

Judge’s Comments: Veterans of Foreign Wars’ (VFW) Checkpoint was last year’s bronze winner for its down-to-earth simplicity. This year, a graphic revamp moves the VFW print-only publication up a notch. The publication added color and an updated layout, but still retains clear focus on who its members are and what kind of content they value. There’s effective integration of graphics/photos and copy, and smart use of cut lines.

2011 Bronze Award: Checkpoint, July/August 2011

Monthly Newsletter or Communication

Checkpoint, July/August 2011

Judge’s Comments: Glossy paper isn’t always important if your target audience is more down-to-earth. That’s why the matte finish and deceptively simple layout of the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ Checkpoint work effectively with action-oriented headlines and articles. The over-sized self-mailers also offer a mix of content that highlights VFW programs, offers case studies, and acknowledges volunteers.
