The publishing professionals of AOPA have again been honored by Association Media and Publishing of Washington, D.C.
The EXCEL Awards recognize excellence and leadership in association media, publishing, marketing, and communications. The AOPA Media department has been a frequent recipient of recognition, and this year Association Media and Publishing also lauded the work of the AOPA Air Safety Institute.
Three bronze medals were awarded to the AOPA Air Safety Institute. Recognized as outstanding video courses are the Weather or Not Thunderstorm Challenge, the institute’s Electronic Flight Instructor Refresher Course (eFIRC), and the Real Pilot Story: Powerless Over Paris video.
The fortieth annual 2020 EXCEL awards had more than 800 entries; only 271 were winners. Of those 271 awards, 71 received Gold, 103 Silver, and 97 Bronze. The award ceremony honoring the innovative and creative teams in association publishing was held virtually in mid-July.
