ITA Pro Magazine Honored with APEX Award of Excellence

Staff Writer | July 10, 2017

The APEX Awards for Publishing Excellence announced its winning entrants and ITA Pro Magazine earned an Award of Excellence in the category for print magazines, journals, and tabloids with at least 32-pages or more. This is the second time ITA Pro Magazine has been honored with an APEX Award in the three years the magazine has been published by the Insurance Technology Association.

The issue specifically cited was the September issue from 2016 which featured not one but two cover stories with insurance leaders Tim Attia of Slice Labs and Rusty Sproat of FIGO Pet Insurance on the front and back covers.

In announcing the awards, Communications Concepts, sponsors of the APEX Awards, cited such different ideas: “The APEX judges often were more impressed by the quality of creative ideas and concepts shown by entries than they were by the expense entailed in their execution. Many of the award-winning entries in this and earlier APEX competitions were classic examples of good ideas, imaginatively executed, despite limitations due to tight budgets, limited resources, and smaller staff.”

“We are very proud of our print and digital editions of ITA Pro Magazine as well as all the content we produce for our membership,” said Jim Daggett, executive director of the ITA and publisher of ITA Pro Magazine. “To have outside judges examine our publication and deem it worthy of an APEX Award is exciting. It reinforces our belief that what we are doing is valuable for our members.”

The APEX Award specifically cited editor in chief Robert Regis Hyle and art director Jason Williams for their work in providing content and presenting it in an appealing manner for readers.

“Two years ago we were honored with our first APEX Award for being one of the best new publications of 2014,” said Hyle. “The bar was raised a little higher this year as we are no longer a new publication and our competition was among all similarly-sized publications across dozens of industries. It is a tremendous honor for all of us and it will inspire us to do even better work in the future.”
