At the annual Parenting Media Association awards banquet this month, MetroFamily was honored to receive 11 awards for excellence in editorial and design. PMA is a non-profit that has been representing the family media market since 1988. Content from regional family publications is reviewed and judged by a panel from the University of Missouri's School of Journalism.
Also at the conference, Sarah Taylor, publisher, was honored with the “Distinguished Member” award by PMA. This award is given periodically to someone who has made significant contributions to their own publications and to PMA. Taylor was a board member for more than 10 years and president for two years, leading the organization through many significant changes.
We're incredibly proud of the staff members and freelancers who help make MetroFamily Magazine an award-winning publication.
