The Pursuit of Excellence and EMA Gold are at the Starting Gate for 2019

The AHP Equine Media Awards (EMA) gets underway this month with the release of the annual contest rules and class list.

Held since 1974, the 2019 American Horse Publications (AHP) annual awards contest offers members an opportunity to be recognized for excellence in 66 equine media classes covering journalism, visual media, multimedia, social media marketing and design.

“The publishing industry is in a constant state of change as technology advances and audiences utilize multiple methods to access news and information,” says Chris Brune, AHP Executive Director and EMA Coordinator. “Equine media provides quality content for the multiple niches in the horse industry and this year’s EMAs reflect the variety of informative, educational, and entertaining material that was published in 2018.”

The Equine Media Awards is open to AHP members only and offers a Publishing Media Division for publications and freelancers as well as a Business Division for equine-related businesses, nonprofit organizations, and colleges.

The Publishing Media Division for Publishing Media and Individual members includes 51 classes with the addition of two new classes:

  • Publishing Media Equine-related Advertising/Marketing Social Media Post or Ad
  • Publishing Media Equine-related Advertising/Marketing Social Media Campaign
