We are thrilled to announce a recent triumph at the 2023 OZZIE Awards, where the publication secured an award for design in the regional/city magazine category. The recognition marks a significant achievement for WALTER, reflecting the unwavering commitment to excellence in storytelling for more than 10 years in the City of Oaks.

The EDDIE and OZZIE Awards, hosted by Folio: magazine, are regarded as one of the most distinguished accolades in the publishing industry. They recognize outstanding work in magazine design and editorial content.

WALTER magazine, known for its compelling content and visuals, received the 2023 OZZIE Award for Design of a Single Issue in the Regional/City Magazine category. This is the first OZZIE win for the magazine. It was awarded for WALTER’s September 2022 issue, a particularly special issue for WALTER, as it celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the magazine with a special section looking back on its previous coverage, in addition to its monthly content.

“This is a remarkable moment for our team at WALTER magazine. Winning an OZZIE is a testament to the hard work, creativity, and innovation that goes into every issue,” said David Woronoff, publisher of WALTER magazine. “Our goal has always been to inspire, inform, and entertain our readers and this recognition reinforces our commitment to excellence in storytelling and design.”

WALTER’s dedication to showcasing the unique and dynamic culture of Raleigh has made it a beloved source of inspiration for readers in the Triangle since 2012. The publication’s design, under the creative direction of Laura Wall, engages its audience with stunning visuals that bring its words to life. “Laura designs each issue with such care, and has cultivated a talented stable of photographers for WALTER. I’m so proud that this award celebrates her great work,” said Ayn-Monique Klahre, the editor of WALTER magazine.
