For more than 20 years, the Eddie & Ozzie Awards have recognized excellence in magazine editorial and design across all sectors of the industry. The 2015 Folio: Eddie & Ozzie Awards chose Independent Joe Magazine as national winner in the category of Cover Design. Our August/Sept. 2014 cover, “Westward Ho,” which promoted the Dunkin’ Donuts Independent Franchise Owners Association western expansion and the 2014 National Conference, was picked by more than 300 judges as the best cover in the association/non-profit magazine category, beating out Kiwanis magazine, Clinical Laboratory News and Engineering Inc., among others.
