    Winners Announced at First Inland Empire Media Awards

    (Riverside, CA) Eighteen local companies and individuals were named winners in the first Inland Empire Media Awards competition on October 15 at the Mission Inn Hotel in Riverside.

    Sponsored by the Inland Empire chapter of the American Advertising Federation, the awards honor media and individuals throughout the region who provide exemplary service to the industry and the community.

    “Congratulations to not only the winners but also to the finalists who made it through the rigorous judging,” said ad club president Peter Mobley. “And to everyone who dedicates their energy to making the media in our communities so great.”

    According to Mark Landon, chair of the awards, all nominations were sent to an out-of-state panel of media and advertising judges with no knowledge or connection to the nominees. Submissions included print, videos, audio, blogs and websites in a number of categories. Local college students were recognized for their performance. Top scores from the judges were named finalists. Winners earned the highest score.
