APHA publications earn APEX accolades


APHA’s family of publications has a longstanding history of delivering excellence to our dedicated readers. Thanks to award programs, we can back up these lofty claims; Chrome and Flash were honored with APEX Awards for Publication Excellence.

The international APEX awards competition recognizes outstanding writers, editors and publication staffs, as well as business and nonprofit communicators in the areas of editorial content, graphic design and success in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. The awards are sponsored by the editors of Writer’s Web Watch, a division of Communications Concepts, Inc., based in Springfield, Virginia. This year’s contest saw more than 1,600 entries from various industries using a wide range of publication styles.

Chrome earned its first award of excellence for “Magazines, Journals & Tabloids – Print, more than 32 pages,” a category heralding the magazine’s outstanding content overall; previously, Chrome has won APEX awards of excellence for design and layout. Flash, APHA’s annual speed-event supplement produced as a supplement to the Paint Horse Journal, continued the tradition of superior design, running away with an award of excellence for “Design and Layout in the Magazines, Journals & Tabloids Category.” These titles come on the heels of more than 20 awards earned by APHA publications at the American Horse Publications’ annual media awards.
