2015 AMP Communications Contest Winners

Chanda Temple receives her 2015 AMP Award for a marketing campaign.

At a special reunion and awards lunch in April 2015, 12 AMP members were awarded first place in varying categories of our annual Communications Contest. These individuals are now competing in the National Federation of Press Women Communications Contest if they are NFPW members. We are pleased to see that our members continually benefit from this contest because of the exposure, accolades, opportunities and feedback from the judges. This year, we had 49 submissions from 23 different individuals in Writing, Radio and Television, and PR Materials categories. Check out the winners:
