DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2014) - HousingWire announced today that it has been selected as a finalist in the Folio Ozzie Awards for B2B Overall Design for the March 2014 issue, and B2B Cover Design for the June 2014 issue. In the March issue, HW Magazine featured an exclusive interview with the CEO of Nationstar Mortgage. The June issue, #Secret2Success, looked at the impact of social media on the housing business.

"While being selected as a finalist for a design award for best magazine cover or best editorial feature is not a small accomplishment, being selected for a prestigious design award for an overall issue is a tremendous accomplishment that is a reflection of a deep collaborative effort from our creative and editorial teams," said Greg Lakloufi, Chief Creative Officer at HousingWire. "The judging panel scrutinizes absolutely everything in the entire magazine -- from cover to table of contents, to features and columns. I am incredibly proud of our team's achievement."

The Folio Eddie and Ozzie awards are the largest competition in magazine publishing, and of the 2,000 competitors that enter under 200 take home awards. The Eddie and Ozzies celebrate design and journalism, and they are the only competition to honor submissions from both categories. This competition also spans multiple magazine categories including consumer, B2B, custom and association publications.

"We are the only industry publication to be nominated in these categories," said Paul Jackson, CEO & Publisher at HousingWire. "It's an honor to be selected as a finalist for such a distinguished award, and I am very proud of our team and the tremendous quality that they produce on a daily basis."

HousingWire is the recipient of numerous awards in both editorial and design, and was the recipient of an Eddie award in 2012 for full issue in the B2B banking, business, and finance category. HousingWire will be in attendance at the Eddie and Ozzie awards breakfast in New York City with hopes of bringing home an Ozzie in 2014.
