    Judge Comment: Page 61 would not load. Very nice ad package with great graphic design, layout. Quality of writing is no Pulitzer, but rather simple, easy to read and serves its purpose.
  • Place Name: Third Place
    Contestant Name: North Coast Journal
    Entry Title: Humboldt Cannabis Magazine
    Entry Credit: Staff
    Judge Comment: Well written. Photographs, for the most part, are good, accompanying art for the stories. Some captions are a little too simplistic and, I believe, would be stronger if those in them had IDs. Nice advertising package (and I bet they paid cash).

    Judge Comment: FlexPaper not very conducive for viewing publication (at least on my Mac with a large screen). Too much zooming and scrolling required. Two-page viewing is thrown off by pages 1 and 2 appearing together, thus not representing how the publication would look as a printed copy. Type on some stories dropped. Otherwise, well written, nice charts, nice ad package.
