The results are in for the 21st Annual Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX), and this year The Green Sheet Inc. brought home three awards for feature writing, news writing and Web site design. APEX awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the ability to achieve overall communications distinction.
Awards are given in 11 main categories, divided into 122 subcategories. In 2009, 3,785 entries were evaluated.
According to Springfield, Va.-based Communications Concepts Inc., the company that evaluates the competition and presents the awards, this year's entries "displayed an extraordinarily high level of quality and the competition was exceptionally intense." The APEX judges said they were impressed by the creative ideas and concepts submitted this year.
The Green Sheet has now received 38 APEX awards, a feat that gives General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Kate Gillespie a tremendous sense of validation.
"I am happy that other people recognize the quality of our magazine," Gillespie said. "I know we have a high-quality publication. And what surprises me every year is that we are able to continually keep such high standards, especially considering how small we are. And you can't lose sight of the fact that everyone here plays an integral part in everything we do. These awards are for everyone at The Green Sheet. We're all part of this."
The Green Sheet Inc. is now a proud affiliate of Bankcard Life, a premier community that provides industry-leading training and resources for payment professionals. Click here for more information.
