- First place, headline writing: BD editor Matthew Hall, for “Starck Raving Cool,” which introduced a September 2016 feature on Philippe Starck’s design of the inaugural M Social hotel. “In a tough competition, this headline expressed the perfect emotion for the story,” the judges said of the entry.
- Second place, headline writing: BD executive editor Mary Scoviak, for “Sibling Revelry,” which introduced an October 2016 feature on two Room Mate hotels that debuted in the same city at the same time.
- Third place, Best Trade Publication in Ohio, for BD’s November 2016edition (the magazine’s at-show issue for its annual Boutique Design New York (BDNY) show). “Beautifully designed magazine with a strong idea-book feel.
