Equine Media Pursues Excellence in AHP’s 50th Year

The AHP Equine Media Awards (EMA) for material published in 2019 gets underway this month with the release of the annual contest rules and class list.

Held since 1976, the American Horse Publications (AHP) annual awards contest offers members an opportunity to be recognized for excellence in 55 equine media classes covering journalism, visual media, multimedia, design, and more.

“The publishing industry is constantly evolving,” says Chris Brune, AHP Executive Director and EMA Coordinator. “Equine media provides quality content and trusted sources for the horse industry in multiple mixed media platforms. This year’s EMAs will showcase the best informative, educational, and entertaining material that was published in 2019.”

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

The Publishing Media Division for Publishing Media and Media Professional members includes 43 classes.

The Business Division offers 14 classes to Business, Nonprofit, and College/University members.
