The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a winner of the esteemed ContentWise 2011 Magnus Opus Award, a leading custom media awards program that recognizes excellence in editorial, design and strategy for organizations using print and online publications as well as social media in their content marketing efforts. WEF's flagship magazine, Water Environment & Technology (WE&T) received a Gold Award for Best Engineering/Construction Publication in the All Around Publication category.

"As the premier magazine for the water quality field, WE&T has been a trusted resource for our members and the profession for many years," said WEF Executive Director Jeff Eger. "It's very gratifying to see the publication and the outstanding work of our WEF staff team receive this recognition."

According to the award notification, the Magnus Opus Awards were established "to provide a unique means of evaluating and celebrating the best in custom publications, one that would set the quality bar for our industry." Now in its eighth year, and presented by ContentWise and the Content Marketing Institute, the awards program has given career-making industry recognition to writers, editors, designers and communication managers who do exceptional print and online work both in the traditional and social media formats.

Professors from the Missouri School of Journalism and leading custom-publishing professionals who specialize in particular content or design areas judge the awards based on a defined set of criteria specific to each of the categories. Judges consider such elements as informational and entertainment value, quality of writing and display copy, creative use of imagery and typography, and consistency of color palette and style.
