911MEDIA and PORAC Honored With 2021 APEX Award
Burbank, California, August 20, 2021 — From a field of nearly 1,200 entries throughout the industry, 911MEDIA has been selected for an APEX Award for Publication Excellence for its work on behalf of the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC).
The APEX Awards recognize professional communicators for graphic design, editorial content and overall excellence.
“2020 was, by far, for most of us, the most challenging year we’ve ever experienced, both personally and professionally,” executive editor and senior judge Ken Turtoro wrote in his announcement of the winners. “There’s no doubt that everyone had to learn new and different ways to do their jobs.”
That was certainly the case for 911MEDIA’s dedicated staff and clients, and it was also reflected in the PORAC project that was honored. “Responding to COVID-19,” an original feature story produced by 911MEDIA for the April 2020 issue of PORAC Law Enforcement News, garnered an Award of Excellence in a new APEX category, COVID-19 Media (Newspaper/Magazine Articles). The article detailed the pandemic’s impact on law enforcement and provided guidance on public health protocols.
“I am so proud that 911MEDIA was able to offer valuable support to our longtime partners at PORAC as their members risked their lives on the front lines throughout the pandemic to preserve public safety,” President and Publisher Mark Deitch says. “Helping our clients effectively communicate essential information is a reward in itself, but seeing our work continue to be placed among the best of the best in the industry is the icing on the cake. I want to thank our talented 911MEDIA team for rising to the challenge and continuing to turn out top-notch strategic communications throughout the unprecedented events of the past year.”
