Inland Empire Media Awards

by admin on 22nd-October-2015


Eighteen winners were announced for the Inland Empire Media Awards at a spectacular gala at the Historic Mission Inn in Riverside. This new signature event for the American Advertising Federation – Inland Empire was made to honor those who provide outstanding service to the industry and the community. All nominations were sent to an out-of-state panel of judges who work in the media or advertising with no connection to any of the nominees. In addition to reading the nomination forms, judges had the opportunity to see samples of many of the nominees work, including read articles, view videos, listen to audio and visit websites. The top scores from the judges were named finalists with the highest score being named winner.
