Chrome named Best Association Magazine for third consecutive year

For the third consecutive year, Chrome was named top association publication by the Livestock Publications Council in their 2017 media awards contest.

“This winning entry is just well and above the rest in the category. Excellent photos, design, clean layouts. Great job on publishing a high-quality magazine,” the judges wrote. “My suggestion is everyone should go home and look up Chrome and then look at your own magazines.”

Previously, Chrome won the top prize at the Livestock Publication Council’s contest in 2015 and 2016.

Chrome and the Paint Horse Journal submitted seven entries to this year’s contest in various writing, design and overall excellence categories. In addition to Chrome’s big win, other placings were:

  • 2nd —Technical Article, Association: January/February 2016, Paint Horse Journal “The Color Inside,” by Irene Stamatelakys
  • Honorable Mention–Cover, Association: March 2016 Paint Horse Journal, designed by Art Vasquez
  • Honorable Mention–Feature/Human Interest, Association: Spring 2016 Chrome “Urban Cowboy,” by Jessica Hein

“We’re always honored when our publications excel in events where our work is evaluated by media-industry professionals; to see them continue to come out on top, especially in an all-inclusive livestock industry contest like this one, is particularly rewarding,” Director of Publications Jessica Hein said. “APHA members and Paint Horses are at the heart of everything we do, and we’re proud when our members’ stories shine bright across the entire livestock industry.”

Chrome is produced three times a year and made available to all current APHA members—to get Chrome, join APHA or renew your membership today. The Paint Horse Journal is a monthly, subscription-based magazine; one-year subscriptions start at $30.
