Ventura Visitors & Convention Bureau (VVCB) proudly announced that the 2017 Ventura Visitor Guide has won an Award for Publication Excellence in the “One-of-a-Kind Publications” category.
The 29th Annual Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX) which recognize excellence in publishing by professional communicators were based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the success of the entry — in the opinion of the judges — in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. The panel of judges for APEX 2017 included John De Lellis, Concepts Editor & Publisher, Ken Turtoro, noted publishing executive and senior APEX judge, Christine Turner, Contributing Editor of the Writing That Works Archives and Bill Londino, Consulting Editor of Writer’s Web Watch.
1,361 entries were evaluated including 60 in the “One-of-a-Kind Publications” category. VVCB was honored that the Ventura Visitor Guide was chosen among 23 same-category winners.
VVCB hopes to continue a tradition of publication excellence in Ventura’s 2018 Visitor Guide currently in progress. Similar to the 2017 Visitor Guide, it will focus on advertorial content that tells the Ventura story through local writers and photographers. The 2018 Visitor Guide will be published before the end of the year.
