Canadian Horse Journal is excited to announce its selection as a finalist in the annual American Horse Publications (AHP) Equine Media Awards competition that recognizes excellence in content published in 2023. A long-time member of AHP, Canadian Horse Journal is once again the only Canadian media named as a finalist in this contest, which welcomes entries from top equine media across North America.  

The AHP awards contest, held since 1976, allows members to enter their best content from the previous year. Finalists represent a broad spectrum of media, including print and online journalism, digital media, photography, videography, podcasts, books, and more

This year more than 78 members entered 453 entries, and the finalists selected by media professional judges represent 22 Media Industry members, 17 Media Professional members, and 9 Business members who advanced to the top in one or more of 47 classes.

“Like the ever-changing media world, so do the winners in each year’s competition,” says Chris Brune, Awards Coordinator. Brune became involved in managing the awards contest in 1992 as the AHP Executive Director. For 32 years, she has watched members cheer fellow competitors for receiving recognition for their work

“AHP Members strive to provide quality content every year,” says Brune. “This collective body of work does a stellar job of educating, informing, and entertaining equine enthusiasts and horse owners. That’s a win all equine media should be proud of.” 

The annual AHP Equine Media Awards Dinner, announcement of winners and presentations will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at the Return to Horse Country Conference in Lexington, Kentucky.
