    SAN FRANCISCO, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Web Techniques magazine, the leading publication for Internet professionals,
 has garnered a Maggie Award for Best Signed Editorial in a trade publication.
 In his acceptance speech, Editor in Chief Amit Asaravala explained that his
 essay "Works Well with Others" was driven in part by the belief that the media
 should speak for those who don't have a voice.  "I'm proud of the staff for
 making Web Techniques such a great magazine," said Asaravala, "We're not
 afraid to take risks or to tell the truth."
     The Maggie Awards, the Western Publications Association's most prestigious
 publishing event, honors editorial, design and promotion excellence in
 magazine, tabloid, newsletter and online publishing.  The 2001 Maggie Awards
 received 2080 entries.  Over 700 publishing professionals gathered in
 Los Angeles to honor their peers at this year's 50th Annual Awards ceremony
 held April 20.
     Web Techniques was nominated for Maggie Awards in two additional
 categories:  Computers/Software, Training & Program Development; and Most
 Improved Publication (Circ. Over 50,000).
     "The Maggie Awards have long been a bellwether by which editorial
 excellence in magazines is measured," said Web Techniques' Publisher,
 Bob Melk.  "We are very proud of the three nominations that Web Techniques
 received this year and are exceedingly proud of being awarded a Maggie for
 Best Signed Editorial."
