New York, NY, November 1, 2002 - Audubon magazine, the flagship publication

category, the flagship publication of the National Audubon Society was given
the award on Tuesday night, October 29th, in Manhattan, NY.

The magazine won for its groundbreaking July 2001 Everglades special issue.
Judges remarked that Audubon was "smart, inventive, beautiful, sometimes
surprising. This is a magazine that understands how to communicate at a
mature level.  Bravo!"

"It's a real thrill to be recognized by your peers," said David Seideman,
Audubon magazine's Editor-in-Chief.  "The Folio Editorial Excellence Award
Gold Medal, along with other awards Audubon has earned over the past two

on the right track."
