National LGBT Media Association Announces 2019 Ad POP Awards

 In Ad POP Awards, Press Releases

The National LGBT Media Association (NGMA) has announced its fourth annual Ad POP award winners, including many top corporate brand names. NGMA member papers have selected one top award winner in their regional markets.

The Ad POPs (Pride in Online and Print) reward the best representations of LGBT advertising in online and print campaigns, as placed in regional LGBT newspapers in its member cities. LGBT marketing is most successful when it is local. The Ad Pops recognize clients, creative and placement agencies, and winners are selected based on their image and messaging.

NGMA represents legacy brand names and new top-performing papers: Bay Area Reporter (San Francisco), Bay Windows (Boston), Between the Lines (Detroit), Dallas Voice, Gay City News (New York City), Los Angeles Blade, Philadelphia Gay News, South Florida Gay News, Georgia Voice, Washington Blade, Watermark (Central Florida and Tampa Bay) and Windy City Times (Chicago).

Rivendell Media, the oldest and most experienced expert in LGBT media, helped coordinate national entries across local LGBT media. “NGMA represents a collective of top publishers in top U.S. markets and is a terrific vehicle for national advertisers to reach the LGBT marketplace,” said Todd Evans, president of Rivendell, which also represents more than 150 other LGBT media companies to advertisers.

“Gay media is local media,” said Evans. “It provides the best on-the-groundinformation to serve the diverse LGBT community.”
