SCI Press Release
May 11, 2007

Tucson, Arizona , May 11, 2007 – SAFARI Magazine, Safari Club International's flagship publication, has won a Diamond Statue of Distinction in the Spring 2007 Media Achievement Awards competition.

The magazine was chosen from among over 1,600 entries, with only the top five percent recognized as award winners. This competition raises the bar of excellence. Entries are judged on a point system by award-winning, highly qualified professionals in the communications industry.

Publications Chair Bruce Eavenson said, "It is no surprise to us that SAFARI Magazine is a winner. One only has to look at the latest issue to see consistent quality and ongoing upgrades in content, design and printing. The staff in Publications does a fine job under the direction of Steve Comus, and they should all be commended."

Director of Publications Steve Comus said, "In an industry that is downsizing, cutting back and taking shortcuts to stay out of the red, SAFARI Magazine is not only continually upgrading its quality and content, but it continues to attract more and better advertising. This fortunate situation is raising the standards for both sides of the magazine business."
