The EC Hispanic Media team was once again recognized by the National Association of Hispanic Publications (NAHP) with two awards at the gala celebrated on October 22 on McAllen, Texas as El Clasificado, its flagship publication, won gold and silver distinctions for excellence in its distribution program and its classifieds section.
With the new awards, EC Hispanic Media reaches a record of 15 consecutive years winning in these two categories, and a grand total of 72 awards throughout the years which have celebrated departments including editorial, marketing, and public relations departments.
“The NAHP awards continue to highlight the strengths of our company’s roots, which are our classifieds and our outstanding distribution system. As we’ve been growing digitally, we’ve managed not just to keep print alive, but to also grow our circulation to serve communities from Central to Southern California,” said Martha de la Torre, the co-founder of EC Hispanic Media, who also noted that the publication reaches more than 1.5 million readers with over 520,000 copies distributed weekly.
Held in McAllen, Texas, October 19-22, the gala saw a large number of Hispanic media companies in attendance, each hoping to be recognized through their print and digital efforts, while also networking with other like-minded employees looking to further encourage greater success within their own organizations.
