The last two digital magazines of 2013 proved to be the best of the year for a locally based trade publication, Vehicle Electrification.

Published by SAE International — an organization for vehicle engineers and technicians that is based in Marshall Township — it received a Gold Azbee Award in the e-zine category for the October and December issues. The Azbee Awards, sponsored by the American Society of Business Publication Editors, recognize outstanding work by publications and blogs.

SAE staff members Jean Broge of Butler, editor; Ryan Gehm of Adams Township and Patrick Ponticel of Coraopolis, associate editors; and Brian Fell of Butler and Wayne Silvonic of Portersville, designers, were recognized June 24 at a banquet in New York City.

“It's a great honor,” said Gehm, 40. “An Azbee is a great recognition in the industry.”

A gold, silver and bronze award are given out in each category by region. Vehicle Electrification won in the Northeast region.

Amy Fischbach, association president in 2013, said that in the e-zine category, judges look at a variety of factors, including ease of navigation and editorial organization.

Vehicle Electrification is published four to six times per year, and is intended to communicate current trends in the market, Gehm said.

He said his publication is focused on excellent writing and reporting, as well as digital platforms that improve the reader's experience.

Ponticel wrote an article for the October issue titled “BMW Bets Big on an Electrified Future with the i3.”

Ponticel, 55, of Coraopolis, spent about a month working on the article.

“Any time you are honored by your colleagues, it feels great,” Ponticel said.
