AKC Gazette Again Named Best All-Breed Magazine

New York, NY — The American Kennel Club Publication Division was honored to receive five awards at the annual Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA) dinner.

The AKC Gazette, The Official Journal for the Sport of Purebred Dogs, which has been continuously published since 1889, won for a second consecutive year in the category of "Best All-Breed Magazine."

AKC Family Dog, the quarterly magazine for purebred pet owners launched two years ago, was recognized for "Best Editorial/Opinion/Essay" in a magazine for Michael Rosen's "Slumber Sweet" and for "Best Subject Related Series" for Jodi Anderson's "Problem Solver."

In addition, the AKC's 2003 Annual Report won in the category of "Poster or Special Publication" and the AKC Jr. News newsletter took home the ASPCA's Humane Issues Special Award for Tom Eldredge's "Baloo's HT."

"We are proud to continue the standard of excellence for which AKC publications are known," said George Berger, AKC Publisher. "The DWAA event is a wonderful opportunity to get to know our peers and be recognized amongst them."
