Hour Detroit Wins General Excellence

2009 National City and Regional Magazine Awards

By Hour Media

We are proud to announce that Hour Detroit magazine took first-place honors for General Excellence in the 24th Annual National City and Regional Magazine Awards competition. The award, announced June 1 at the CRMA’s conference in New Orleans, recognized Hour Detroit as the best magazine in the country, based on layout, editorial content, photography, and design.

Judges included editors, academics, art directors, and publishers representing Gourmet, The Atlantic, Esquire, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Food & Wine, as well as the Missouri School of Journalism.

Judges said: “The staff of this big magazine does an extraordinary job of telling the stories of Detroit. With words, pictures, illustrations and design, the narratives are fresh and innovative. It is a hard job to be trendy and accessible, but Hour Detroit each month manages to grab readers with important issues of the day as well as whimsical profiles, service pieces and essays.”

Hour Detroit is a publication of Hour Media, which also publishers Detroit Home, DBusiness, and Metro Detroit Bride magazines. Hour Media also produces the Metropolitan Detroit Guest and Resource Guide, The Metropolitan Detroit Menu Guide, and numerous custom materials.
