We are happy to announce that EquiManagement is a finalist in the American Horse Publications (AHP) 2021 Equine Media Awards. EquiManagement has won in the AHP Media Awards contest in the past.
The pandemic cancelled the 2020 AHP conference, and members gathered on Facebook to watch a video of the announcement of the 2020 winners. This year, AHP moved its conference in Texas from May to September in order to hold an in-person event and awards presentation.
“Members love the awards ceremony where they are publicly recognized for their achievements and applauded by their peers at the annual conference,” said Chris Brune, Executive Director of AHP. “It was important for our association to give members a chance to be together on this special night.”
A total of 643 entries were submitted by 98 individual members, 33 Publishing Media members, 19 Media Professional members, and 14 Business members.
A landmark change to the 45-year-old contest was the implementation of an online submission and judging system in 2021. “This new system eliminated shipping packages for members, judges and the association and saved time and money,” said Brune. “After the initial learning curve, both members and judges found the system easy and quick to navigate.”
The 2021 AHP Equine Media Awards presentations will be held on Saturday evening during the AHP Equine Media “Back in the Saddle” Conference in Irving, Texas, on September 16-18, 2021.
We are pleased that several ‘family’ members of the Equine Network LLC, parent company of EquiManagement, also were finalists:
- Horse and Rider
- Practical Horseman
- The Team Roping Journal
- USHJA In Stride (which the Equine Network produces for the USHJA)
