Mountain View, CA — December 22, 2014  TDA Group, LLC, today announced that leading publishing industry journal FOLIO: Magazine has awarded the IBM Business Partner Voices blog an Eddie in the 2014 Business to Business—Standalone Digital Magazine—Technology/Telecom [Eddies Digital] category.

More than 230 awards were presented at FOLIO:’s 2014 Eddie and Ozzie Awards breakfast at The Yale Club in New York City on Thursday, December 11, 2014. A majority of the awards were centered on print, while more than 60 were dedicated to digital excellence.

According to TDA Group President Paul Gustafson, this Eddie win is especially gratifying. “We’re always pleased to win a prestigious Eddie Award. It tells us we’re innovating in digital publishing,” he says. “The team works hard to maintain the highest editorial standard for Business Partner Voices, so it’s very gratifying to see their efforts be recognized by our peers.”

For TDA Group Managing Writer Peter VanderMost—who serves as Executive Editor for Business Partner Voices—the win for Standalone Digital Magazine is a testament to the high quality of the content featured on the blog. “Delivering thought leadership and insider news that’s compelling and relevant was our focus at inception,” he says. “To then watch the blog become a vital resource in the IBM Business Partner ecosystem—and win an Eddie in the process—validates our mission.”

The annual Eddie Awards program recognizes editorial excellence and is the only competition to cover all corners of magazine publishing, making it the largest and most inclusive awards program of its kind in the industry. FOLIO:’s panel of judges selected the winners from more than 2,000 entries received this year from consumer, B2B, custom, and association publications.
