Two of e.Republic Inc.'s magazines -- Government Technology's Public CIO and Emergency Management -- won five prestigious ASBPE awards at the American Society of Business Publication Editors banquet held in New York City on August 2.

Government Technology's Public CIO was awarded "Magazine of the Year" and also took silver for "Best Feature Illustration," while e.Republic's newest publication, Emergency Management, received silver for "Editorial Excellence, New Publication" and gold honors in the categories of "Photography/Illustrations Overall" and "Typography Overall." All were in the under 80,000 circulation category.

Public CIO is a leadership journal covering management issues, technology strategies, and political hurdles unique to intergovernmental C-level executives. Established in 2003, it is published six times per year. "Winning the ASBPE 'Magazine of the Year' is a tremendous honor and a testament to the importance of high-quality editorial and thought leadership for senior executives," said Publisher Jon Fyffe. "Public CIO's unique voice has resonated strongly and helped foster new collaboration across the public sector."

In a blog posted to the PCIO site today, PCIO Editor Tod Newcombe chronicled the development of PCIO. "The goal was to have professional journalists as well as academics and industry analysts contribute well-researched, thought-provoking articles," said Newcombe, "providing readers with a rich selection of informative and knowledge for IT executives who have to manage some of the most complex computer systems and networks under some of the most trying circumstances."

Emergency Management is a publication designed to provide leadership and strategy insight on the critical roles and responsibilities involved in joint operations, planning and recovery for any major threat or emergency. It was launched in 2006 and is published quarterly. "This award is a tribute to both the editorial staff of Emergency Management magazine who have created a terrific publication, and to the emergency managers, first responders and all those who serve the public in times of immense need," said Publisher Tim Karney.
 
Because the ASBPE awards are determined by leading business publication editors, they are considered by many as the industry's most prestigious level of recognition in magazine excellence.
