The New Jersey Apartment Association has earned three national honors for its work in digital communications and editorial content.
In a news release, the organization announced that it won a Communicator Award of Distinction from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, a recognition of its editorial content and intuitive use of its website. The NJAA earned the distinction alongside winners such as Johns Hopkins University, Smithsonian Museums and Mercedes-Benz.
The association noted that AIVA receives more than 6,000 entries from across the U.S. and around the world for its Communicator Awards, its largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence in communications in the nation.
The Monroe-based association also received two 2018 Awards of Excellence from the Apex Awards for Publication Excellence contest, the news release said. NJAA’s new website, which was launched in 2017, earned top honors in the Most Improved Website category, while NJAA’s March/April 2017 Apartment Industry Magazine received an award for its content and design.
The Apex Awards contest is an international competition recognizing outstanding publications including newsletters, magazines, websites, reports and marketing materials. Of the more than 1,400 entries received this year, only 556 received an Award of Excellence.
“NJAA recognizes the value of being able to innovatively market the benefits of our association to the multifamily industry,” said David Brogan, executive director of NJAA. “Winning these honors when being judged against Fortune 100 companies and national nonprofits is a tremendous compliment that truly validates the hard work of our professional staff.”
