Association Media & Publishing’s EXCEL Awards is the largest and most prestigious awards program that exclusively recognizes excellence and leadership in nonprofit association media, publishing, and communications. With close to 960 entries submitted this year, 196 winners, representing 110 organizations and associations, were chosen as the most exemplary work in editorial, design, marketing, web publishing, mobile applications, and more. EXCEL Award winnerswere recognized at the 34th Annual EXCEL Awards Gala, Monday, May 19 at the Sheraton Premiere, Tysons Corner, Va. At the Gala we unveiled re-designed awards, introducing an new iconic world-class symbol of Association Media & Publishing excellence.
The EXCEL Awards Gala was held in conjunction with Association Media & Publishing’s 2014 Annual Meeting. Designed with a deep commitment to meeting the needs of association media and publishing professionals, the conference highlighted all aspects of communications from business strategy to non-dues revenue; content; and design, delivery, and engagement.
