NEW YORK — SmartWork Media, parent company of INSTORE magazine, cleaned up in the recent TABPI awards, winning a total of eight awards for three publications to make the company one of the biggest winners of any media group participating in the competition.

Awards highlights included INSTORE managing editor Eileen McClelland’s two Gold awards for best feature (“8 Holiday Customer Types”) and best how-to story (“Dump Your Dogs”). In addition, SmartWork Media’s magazine for the eyecare business, INVISION, won a total of four awards on its own, making it one of the most honored publications in the TABPI (Trade Association Business Press International) competition.

In the competition’s most prestigious category, best single issue of a publication, all three SmartWork publications were winners, with INDESIGN taking the silver award for its May 2015 edition, INVISION earning ninth place for its March 2015 edition, and INSTORE’s October 2015 edition earning the 11th spot.

In addition to the best single issue honor, INVISION’s awards also included a silver medal for best how-to feature (“The Art of Adding On”), a ninth-place finish for best feature story for “The Year of Reading Seriously”, written by the staff of INVISION, plus an honorable mention for best feature design for Group Design Editor Victor Cantal for the story “Love Work”.

The latest awards haul brings SmartWork Media’s total number of honors in international publishing competitions up to 91.

Earlier in the year, INSTORE was also named to TABPI’s “Big 95” list, highlighting the 95 most acclaimed business-to-business publications since TABPI launched its awards competition in 2004. INSTORE placed sixth on that list and INDESIGN was 29th.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
