    Judge Comment: Simply well done. From the cover through the capsules, there was a sense of a grand project. The varied capsule layouts were a great touch to keep the reader engaged. The pullouts, too, had variety. It was deep, yet easy to navigate.

    Judge Comment: The entry said it was a complete sourcebook, and it is. A great deal of information yet a reader can follow along. If you have a question about the area, it seems the answer was in here.

    Entry Title: Hampton Roads Business
    Entry Credit: Joel Smith, Kate Andrews, Richard Foster
