Here’s what Becca Opp, Editor of Design & Living Magazine, said about winning the award:

The Project Issue was the first cover of my career. I had just started working at Spotlight Media when I pitched an idea for the cover and reached out to the owners of The White House Co., who helped us stage the scene, which was then photographed by Jesse Hoorelbeke of J. Alan Paul Photography and edited by our graphic designer, Sarah Geiger.

“It was so meaningful to be recognized by the AAF of North Dakota because it just goes to show that we’re all using our talents to the best of our abilities. The September cover was our first cover to be shot by staff photographer, Hillary Ehlen, while the December cover featured styling by Gathered. Boutique Rentals & Events. Each of our covers truly are the result of a group effort, and I’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the creation of these three.”
