Welcome Back!By Tim Hodson

Happy Cyber Monday and welcome back from the land of tryptophan.

Right before the Thanksgiving holiday, I was notified that GPN and its sister publication, Lawn & Garden Retailer, were both medalists in Folio magazine’s Eddie Awards competition.

Folio is the magazine for people who publish magazines and the Eddie Awards recognize “excellence in outstanding magazine editorial and design.”

Both publications were honored for Best Full Issue in their respective categories. GPN’s July 2011 issue received a bronze award while Lawn & Garden Retailer’s May 2012 issue was recognized with a silver award.

Our Custom Media Division also was honored recently by the Custom Content Council in the 2012 Pearl Awards competition. The competition recognized the Custom Media Division’s Creative Garden Retailer custom print and digital magazine produced for Suntory.

Have You Made Your Nominations Yet?

Don’t forget, GPN is looking for 40 men and women for our 40 Under 40 Class of 2013.

We will feature those individuals who represent the future of horticulture in our May issue and at OFA Short Course.

Anyone under the age of 40 (as of Jan. 31, 2013) can be nominated. For details on how to nominate someone click here.

Also, be sure to check out the 40 Under 40 page and our special edition of Hort TV that featured our Class of 2012 on
