What’s different for 2015?
Members will have more opportunities to enter their online material. Membership now includes your branded website which makes content published in 2014 eligible for a wide variety of classes this year. A branded website is the “same name” URL associated with the AHP member and listed in the AHP file records.
All your favorite media classes are all listed in the new Publishing Media Division. This new division includes editorial content, photography/illustration, multimedia, design, specialty, Special Awards, and General Excellence classes for Publishing Media, Individual and Student Members.
New classes for 2015 in the Publishing Media Division include:
Business members have their own class division. Business, Nonprofit, and College/University Members can now enter classes in the new Business Division. These classes include print ads, videos, specialty publications, books, blogs, e-newsletters and websites. New for 2015 is a Business Ad Campaign class. More participation in the Business Division will open the door to more classes in the future.

These classes are Student Equine-related Journalism (print or online), Freelance Writer Equine-related Journalism (print or online), Freelance Editorial Photograph (print or online) and the Alltech A+ Equine Journalism Award.
