For the fourth consecutive year, NRB’s weekly e-newsletter, NRB Today, was recognized with the Evangelical Press Association’s (EPA) Award of Excellence in the “E-Newsletter (Digital)” category.
The EPA is the world’s largest professional organization for the evangelical periodical publishing industry, and hosts two annual contests: the Awards of Excellence contest (for publications as a whole) and the Higher Goals contest (for individual pieces produced – reporting, photos, design, etc.).
The Awards of Excellence contest, which looks at the entire publication, honors overall excellence and is broken down by category, with awards offered in each category. Judges in each category evaluate a number of criteria, including writing quality, content choices, and design.
“We are grateful for the recognition — yet again — for the excellence of NRB Today,” said James A. Smith Sr., vice president of communications of NRB. “Our entire staff shares in this honor, but the most credit — by far — is due to Kenneth Chan, who is the driving force behind this weekly effort. Recognition from our professional peers is great and deeply appreciated, but our greatest concern and goal is to serve our members with a tool that helps them to advance their ministries.”
The EPA awards were presented during the association’s annual convention. The recently concluded convention, EPA 2018, was held April 3-7 in Orlando, Florida.
Other recipients of an Award of Excellence include NRB members World Vision for its self-titled magazine (in the Organizational category); Compassion International for Compassion Magazine Online (in the Organization Digital category) and for Compassion Explorer Magazine Online (in the Youth Digital category); and Focus on the Family for Brio (in the Youth category).
LifeWay Christian Resources’ Facts & Trends magazine; Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse magazine and self-titled magazine; In Touch Ministries' In Touch magazine; Answers in Genesis' Answers magazine; Cru’s Storylines magazine; World Vision’s self-titled magazine; Compassion International’s Compassion magazine; and Voice of the Martyrs’ self-titled magazine were also honored with Higher Goals awards for articles, designs, and photos featured in their respective publications last year.
