Lift and Access 360 Wins Construction Writers Award

Lift and Access 360 eMagazine has been awarded the Construction Writers Association Electronic Communication Award for its Aug. 8 edition. The twice-monthly eMagazine provides readers with top industry news, guest columns, product spotlights, exclusive features and staff commentary. An awards dinner to recognize winners will be held during the association's annual meeting on Oct. 11 in Chicago.

The CWA's website awards were established in 1998 to acknowledge excellence in journalistic web communications. As the use of electronic communications rose in the form of e-newsletters, e-zines, blogs, and more, CWA broadened its website award competition to include electronic communications in 2006. The competition is open to construction-related individuals or organizations and to construction-related websites or electronic communications.

The electronic communications award was judged based on effective use of technology; quality of content; design and graphics; accessibility; meeting stated objectives; and overall impression. Judging was conducted by a panel of peers with expertise in business communication, website design and electronic communications.

The Construction Writers Association is a non-profit, non-partisan, international organization for journalists, publicists, photographers, and marketing communications professionals serving the information needs of the construction industry.
