Diablo Custom Publishing to Receive Two Pearl Awards

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Diablo Custom Publishing (DCP) has been selected to receive two prestigious Pearl Awards from the Custom Content Council. DCP will receive an award for Best Opening Spread for the April 2013 edition of Giants magazine and Best Feature Article/Package for UC Hastings, Spring 2013. The Pearl Awards celebrate the best in custom media. Finalists were selected from over 600 entries from 15 countries. The awards ceremony will be held November 12, 2013, in New York City.

Giants magazine, the official magazine of the San Francisco Giants, is produced six times per baseball season. The magazine’s mission is to engage Giants fans through in-depth articles and personalized stories about the players and the Giants’ organization. The winning design features an action photo of Buster Posey taken during the 2012 National League Championship Series. The spread was designed by DCP designer Jake Watling, incorporating a photo from Missy Mikulecky of the Giants.

UC Hastings is the alumni magazine for UC Hastings College of Law. The magazine’s purpose is to engage and educate its alumni on current and future happenings at UC Hastings. The winning submission, for Best Feature Article/Package, is an in-depth feature on Kamala Harris, a UC Hastings alum and current California Attorney General, written by DCP Managing Editor Angela Noel.

“Winning a Pearl award is truly a humbling experience. There are so many submissions, the competition is really tough, and to come away a winner is a testament to the skill, experience, and commitment of our team and its ability to continually produce superior magazines,” notes Barney Fonzi, Group Publisher for Diablo Publications, parent of DCP.
