MTD wins 6 editorial and graphics awards
Modern Tire Dealer received five medals for editorial excellence at the 20th International Automotive Media Awards (IAMA) ceremony, held Monday, June 20, 2011, at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, Mich.
In addition to a gold medal, MTD's May 2010 cover went one step further when it won the "Best of Graphics" division (see photo). Art Director Neal Weingart received a crystal trophy for his "Is the glass half full or half empty?" design, which referred to the lead story on how private brand marketers were adjusting six months after a 35% tariff on Chinese consumer tire imports had been implemented.
Entered in the Magazine Writing division, MTD took home the following Foundation Award medallions:
* Gold, Editorial category, "The tariff effect, one year later," Bob Ulrich.
