The FaQtory is very pleased to announce that My Orange Duffel Bag has won an IPPY award for Most Outstanding Design!
The “IPPY” Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents, over 2,500 “IPPYs” have been awarded to authors and publishers around the world.
The Awards recognize 12 Outstanding Books of the Year in categories such as Most Inspirational to Youth and Most Likely To Save the Planet, and to gold, silver and gold medal winners in 69 categories, ranging from non-fiction categories like Architecture and Religion, to fiction categories like Multicultural and Horror. Our Regional Awards honor books published with a regional focus, and recognize Best Fiction and Best Non-Fiction Book in eight U.S. regions, two Canadian regions, and Australia/New Zealand.
The 15th annual 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards had approximately 4,000 total entries from 2,000 independent authors and publishers. On May 23, 2011, the IPPY awards will be presented in New York.

Richardson International’s traffic-stopping trade show booth has not only been successful in garnering a great amount of interest from farm customers, it is causing the industry to sit up and take notice.
During the Western Canadian Crop Production Show, held January in Saskatoon, the high-impact display received the Best Large Booth Award, as voted on by the show’s organizing committee. It also won the Most Innovative award during March’s Ag Expo in Lethbridge, where judges praised its eye-catching design, innovative multimedia monitors and effective use of space.
“The new booth proudly displays every part of our business and is very welcoming to our customers and suppliers,” says Russ Reich, Marketing Specialist for Richardson Pioneer.
Strategically envisioned and created by The FaQtory, the booth features a sleek and innovative custom design that encompasses all aspects of the organization. The booth effectively promotes Richardson International as Connecting Farm, Food and the Future.
“The booth has proven to be a great networking tool during trade shows,” Reich says. “It shows customers and suppliers that our staff and our Ag Business Centres are the best in the industry.”
In addition to being one of the most popular exhibits at the Ag Expo and at the Western Canadian Crop Production Show, which was attended by over 17,200 people and is regarded as Western Canada’s premier grain industry showcase, Richardson International’s booth made appearances at Agri-Trade in Red Deer, Ag Days in Brandon and Farm Tech in Edmonton.
