The Georgia Review, UGA’s nationally renowned quarterly journal of arts and letters, earned seven honors, including four golds, at the Magazine Association of the Southeast’s 2008 GAMMA awards ceremony, held last month. Chief among the Review’s wins was the general excellence award for publications with less than $1 million in revenue; the Review won this same award in 2007.
Other gold awards for the Review were best feature for “The Commerce Between Us: Correspondence from the Archives, 1977-2000” (spring 2007), best profile for “Annabel Before the War: Only What I See” by Joy Passanante (summer 2007) and best photography, for “3-D” by Thomas Allen (spring 2007).
“Pursuing the Great Bad Novelist” (fall 2007), the first publication by Laura Sewell Matter, earned a silver award in the essays category. The winter 2007 issue received a bronze award for best single issue, as did the spring and fall issues together for best design.
