2017 Cover Evaluations

On Wednesday, June 27, 2018, Lessiter Media founder Frank Lessiter hosted our annual cover review in which a collection of our publications' covers are reviewed by a third party judge. Each year we gain actionable feedback that has continued to improve our end product for our readers.

This year's judge was Lynn Henderson, Publisher/Editorial Director of Agri Marketing Magazine. Lynn took the time to come and tour our headquarters, and for the first time in Lessiter Media cover evaluation history presented live feedback on the submissions he evaluated. This was an exceptional learning opportunity, as always, and we thank Lynn for his time and thoughtful commentary on this year's "class" of covers.
