The Parenting Media Association (PMA) announced the winners on Saturday of its editorial and design competition at a banquet held at the conclusion of its annual meeting in St. Petersburg, FL on Friday, March 2, 2018.
The PMA, a non-profit representing the family media market since 1988, received 560 entries for 2017 magazines issues and digital products. Prof. Reuben Stern of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism oversaw the judging. In sum, 148 awards were given in editorial categories, 84 in design categories, 23 awards for Ancillary Publications, 19 awards in the Digital Media space and 29 for General Excellence. The Overall General Excellence winners for 2017 were Coulee Parenting, Doha Family, Little Rock Family, Baltimore’s Child, Nashville Parent, Indy’s Child, Dallas Child, Colorado Parent and Metro Parent.
“Our awards recognize the best work done in our industry,” said PMA President Mary Cox. “Our member publications engage with families throughout the United States, Canada and Australia, be it through print, websites, email, social media and events. Our collective goal is to making parenting easier – after all, it’s the most important job in the world – and even more of a fun ride.”
Indy’s Child Wins Gold for General Excellence
A sophisticated sensibility in both design and content is evident in Indy’s Child. From the enchanting images on each cover to insightful story packages to artfully arranged calendar displays, the magazine demonstrates its attention to detail. A summer fun section, for example, brims with good ideas, from train excursions to beating the heat indoors. The magazine is well-sourced, well-edited and well-presented.
