2011 Silver Award: SLAS The Lab Man Podcast Series

Monthly Newsletter or Communication

SLAS The Lab Man Podcast Series

Judge’s Comments: The Lab Man Podcast Series utilizes wry humor, personal opinion, and science to entice members to listen to the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening’s brief monthly programs. From the fun sound effects at the beginning and end of each podcast, to the slightly monotone delivery that reinforces stereotypes of scientists, to the association marketing messages that are delivered as personal opinion, the monthly audio offerings don’t miss a beat. There are also complementary blog posts that match up to each podcast, but often offer slightly different content than the podcasts themselves.

2010 Silver Award: Passenger Transport, July 5, 2010

Monthly Newsletter/Communication

Passenger Transport, July 5, 2010

Judge’s Comments: The breaking news section is vital in an industry publication covering such a hot topic, it was great to see it at the top of their newsletter. The content is high quality and the layout is clear and user friendly. The “People on the Move” section is a nice feature to highlight employment changes within the industry.
