School Library Journal has been named a finalist in the 2022 FOLIO Awards for its censorship coverage.
School Library Journal (SLJ) has been named a finalist in the 2022 FOLIO Awards for its censorship coverage in two categories.
“Striking Back,” our February 2022 cover, was honored for cover design among B2B publications in the under-25,000 circulation category. With illustration by Doug Chayka, art direction by Mark Tuchman, SLJ creative director, the cover is a finalist for an Ozzie Award, which recognizes design excellence.
In the 2022 Eddies—honoring editorial achievement in print and digital media—SLJ is a finalist for best overall series of articles in B2B publishing for its coverage of censorship, also in February. Features included: Fighting for the Right to Read: Librarians lead the battle for Intellectual Freedom; Battle Tested: A school librarian shares her story by Martha Hickson (pictured); On the Frontline: Stories from the SLJ tipline by Colleen Connolly; and Anatomy of a Challenge: An examination of a Leander, TX, book ban, which preceded a pattern of challenges nationwide, by Colleen Connolly. Coverage was edited and produced by Sarah Bayliss, SLJ senior features editor, Kara Yorio, senior news editor, and SLJ staff.
Honoring the best of writing and design, the annual Eddie and Ozzie Awards are presented by FOLIO. Winners will be announced in New York City in September.
