What’s new for 2014?

Online Editorial Content Changes

  • The Online Service to the Reader Single Article class has been renamed the Online User-Focused Single Article class to better describe the type of editorial content being written for the online audience.
  • Online Equine-related Multimedia classes have been moved to the Digital Media division instead of Editorial Content.  Online Equine-related Multimedia Editorial Event Coverage must include text and at least two of the following: graphics, video, audio and photography that create a multimedia coverage for single equine event. Online Equine-related Editorial Multimedia is now described as: a collection of multimedia that has a sense of continuity of same subject identifying it as the collection. All parts of this collection has to be dated 2013 and published on a digital member website or digital edition. Entry must include a collection of multimedia formats including text and two or more of the following photography, audio, video, podcasts or broadcasts.

Bundling URLs and Archiving

  • Members are requested to do three things before submitting online entries:

    1. Archive entries on your site at a permanent URL that will not change. Many content management systems already do this, so no extra work will be required in those situations.

    2. Online entries with multiple links must be submitted as one permanent link (one page cataloguing all the components of the entry). If you do not normally archive online content in this manner, discuss this with your webmaster or IT department to create such a catalog page. 

    3. Make sure the date of publication is included in the linked content (for entry date verification).


  • Several changes were made to the Online Equine-related Blog class. Digital Media and Corporate member blog entries are still required to be published on an AHP member website, however Individual and Student members are allowed to enter their blogs published on either an AHP Digital Media member or non-member website. This change allows freelancers and students to enter with blogs published on sites such Blogspot or Word Press.
  • Blog entries will also be required to submit only one URL address that links directly to the archive of the blog posts for 2013.
  • Judging a blog is different from judging editorial content. Blogs will be judged on writing, engagement with readers, user-friendliness, originality, personality, visual aesthetics, archiving, variety of subject, and evidence of social media promotion.
