Ashburn Magazine

Ashburn Magazine wins top Virginia magazine award

A little horn tooting to share this morning — our friends and colleagues at Ashburn Magazine had a great time last Saturday at the Virginia Press Association awards dinner — where they cleaned up.

The magazine won more than 20 awards across all categories — for both editorial content and advertising design. And Ashburn Magazine went on to take the top prize — the Grand Sweepstakes, as it’s called — in the magazine division.

Ashburn Magazine was honored with three first place awards for its photography by professional photographer (and Broadlands resident) Astri Wee.

The magazine also won first place for cover design and headline writing.

Other stories honored included the magazine’s look at Loudoun emergency workers on the Swift Water Rescue team, an Ashburn man trying to keep the art of ragtime music alive, the history of a 145 year-old Ashburn church, and an article titled “As The Worm Turns,” which profiled a local start-up composting business.

Ashburn Magazine was launched in 2019 by publisher (and Farmwell Hunt resident) Bruce Potter. It is delivered to more than 13,000 Ashburn homes, with several thousand more copies available at businesses around the community.
