AWWA wins fourth-straight APEX Award

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today that for the fourth-straight year, it received an APEX Award from Communications Concepts, an organization that advises publishing and marketing professionals on best practices to improve their publications and communications programs. 

This is the 34th year for the annual APEX Awards, which recognize excellence in graphic design, editorial content and overall communications effectiveness. 

This year, Opflow, AWWA’s operations magazine, won an Award of Excellence for a series on advanced metering infrastructure covered in the January/February, March and April 2021 issues (category 24 — magazine series). This is the fourth consecutive award won by Opflow, and the third year in a row that it picked up an Award of Excellence for a series on a single topic/theme.

“This is a tremendous honor,” said John Hughes, editor of Opflow. “I am extremely grateful to be part of the Opflow team, which deserves credit for our being recognized among an extremely competitive field of entries. We are fortunate to work with exceptional writers, who do an outstanding job explaining important issues facing the water sector, like advanced metering infrastructure.”

“AWWA’s publications—Opflow, Journal AWWA and AWWA Water Science—all work hard to share knowledge and best practices to members,” said AWWA CEO David LaFrance. “Our publications staff works tirelessly to produce high-quality educational content and opportunities for our members, consumers and the total water community. Receiving this award furthers the statement that AWWA’s members are the leaders who ensure excellence in the management of water.”
