THE 2020 FMA

Charlie Awards


The sky’s the limit for our FMA members! On behalf of the FMA Board of Directors, congratulations to this year’s Charlie Award winners! Just as the relaunching of the space program here in Florida reminds us what mankind is capable of, this year’s winners show us there are no limits to their creativity and resiliency, even in the face of unbelievable odds. 2020 has been a year for the history books. When we look back on it, I hope we remember the resiliency of the Florida publishers who quickly rose to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope we remember FMA’s “How Florida Magazines Are Dealing With the Coronavirus Pandemic” webinar, where nearly 100 publishing pros joined to learn how their peers are keeping their magazines going. I hope we remember how an entire industry joined forces, how even competitors put aside their differences and shared their experiences, their resources, in the hopes of helping everyone get to the other side together. This year has tested our limits, but that only makes it all the more important to celebrate our accomplishments. This year’s awards demonstrate the highest quality of work across a variety of media — with more than 560 entries from wonderfully talented companies. On the following pages, we recognize the innovative excellence that Florida has become known for. I want to thank you for joining us for our digital awards presentation on July 24. I also extend a big thank-you to our judges for their thoughtful feedback and discerning eye. These 15 publishing professionals from across the country brought a wealth of talent and experience to the awards process and selflessly volunteered their time to evaluate this year’s entries. We’ll be back and better than ever next year at the Florida Media Conference in Sarasota! I can’t tell you how much I look forward to greeting all of you in person again. One thing I’ve learned through my nearly 20 years with the association is that our community is strong, and our members’ passion for the profession never wavers. Today, our members continue to transform magazine publishing and launch it to new heights. Tomorrow, who knows? If this year’s SpaceX launch is any indication, I’d say Florida’s best and brightest are just getting started. See you next year!

Florida Magazine Association 1025 Greenwood Blvd., Suite 191 Lake Mary, FL 32746-5410 floridamagazine.org 321.283.5257

The Charlie Awards are named in honor of the late Charles G. Welborn Jr., a longtime professor of journalism and communications at the University of Florida whose numerous contributions to FMA and the publishing industry have been instrumental in furthering the growth of magazines in our state.

“Florida has found its Garden & Gun. Flamingo is everything a magazine should be: a collection of stories you won’t want to stop reading. There’s not a single page that seems like filler. The magazine’s voice and mantra are clear from cover to cover: This is a portrait of life in Florida, authentically told by natives and expressed with aching nostalgia by former residents. Even the Q&As feel like real conversations. Whether you currently live in Florida or have since moved away, this magazine will make you miss the Sunshine State—Publix subs, seaside thunderstorms, pink flamingoes and all.” The 2020 fma Charlie Awards Winners
