The Voice wins 5 Folio: awards

SNEWS’ cutting-edge trade magazine wins Best Full Issue, Best Magazine Section, Best Long Form Article, and more

The Voice has been recognized for editorial excellence from Folio: for the second year in a row.

The Voice, SNEWS’ premier bi-annual trade magazine, had five big wins this year at the coveted Folio: Awards. Folio:’s Eddie Awards are the largest and longest-standing recognition program in the magazine industry. Thousands of entries are received each year. In 2019, The Voice won Best B2B Magazine Launch.

"The Eddie & Ozzie Awards recognize the pillars of magazine and digital publishing—outstanding journalism and content, photography, design, and the extremely talented people who produce it,” said Danielle Sikes, associate publisher at Folio:.

The Voice won in the following highly competitive B2B categories:

“We’re so honored and energized by these awards, which are testament to our amazing roster of staff and contributors,” says Kristin Hostetter, editorial director. “We’re devoted to serving the members of outdoor industry with content that really matters to them and their businesses. We all know what a tough year it’s been for media, so this is particularly gratifying.”

The Voice, SNEWS, and several of its consumer-facing sister publications including BACKPACKER, SKI, Climbing were acquired by Pocket Outdoor Media in July.

The next issue of The Voice will drop in late January. It will be packed with bold, diverse voices and topics related to our key pillar areas of coverage, including sustainability, diversity, equity, and inclusion, independent specialty retail, innovation, climate, and more.
