The new monthly publication, El Punto, wins first place in the category for “Outstanding New Publication”
Los Angeles, CA, October 9, 2013 – EC Hispanic Media and El Clasificado shined bright at this past National Association of Hispanic Publications’ Awards Ceremony where they received a total of 21 awards. This is a new record for the weekly Spanish-language classified magazine, with the largest distribution in the country. Honored with the most awards in it’s history for print, digital and display, growth for the Norwalk based company is evident now more than ever.
Once more and for the twelfth time, the main magazine of EC Hispanic’s media conglomerate won the category of Best Circulation program and Best Classified Section, as well as Best Website for Promoting your Publication for ECHispanicMedia.com.
There were a total of eleven awards under the golden category, one of them for Best New Publication with El Punto, the one year old monthly product directed to the Hispanic community in Southern California. Two articles written for this same publication won big at the NAHP conference. In first place, a story about the avocado industry’s impact in Morelia, Mexico, and in third place a piece written by Alicia Garcia on HomeGirl Café in Los Angeles and its community activism.
“We could not be happier about winning so many awards at the NAHP. This reflects our efforts on turning into a diversified company, with quality print and digital products,” said Martha de la Torre, co-founder of El Clasificado and EC Hispanic Media.
De la Torre indicated that the integration of print and digital products and special supplements such as Fiestas Patrias, which took its first award under Best Digital Publication, are proof that product combination is the road to take for many media companies in the United States.
The NAHP took place at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel in Anaheim, California.
