The Horse Media Group was recognized for excellence in equine publishing with four awards June 20 at the American Horse Publications (AHP) annual awards program, held in San Antonio, Texas.
The awards recognized print and online work completed in and dated 2014.
TheHorse.com’s Readers Favorites e-newsletter received first place in the Equine-Related Publishing Media e-Newsletter category. The judges commented that the e-newsletter had a “very clean, easy to read design” and was quick to load. The Readers Favorites e-newsletter is produced by News Editor Erica Larson, Digital Managing Editor Michelle Anderson, Digital Producer Jennifer Whittle, Managing Editor Alexandra Beckstett, and Editor-in-Chief Stephanie L. Church.
TheHorse.com also took home top honors in the Editorial Infographic (print or online) category with a visual guide to navicular disease. The judges said the infographic was “well-detailed and in-depth where it needs to be, yet short enough to be digested as an infographic rather than a ‘charticle,’" adding that it had a “good balance between words and images with sophisticated design.” Claudia Summers, Beckstett, Church, Anderson, and Larson contributed to the navicular disease infographic.
