WINDSOR, Conn., and Atlanta, July 28, 2020—LIMRA MarketFacts and LOMA Resource magazines were recently recognized by APEX as 2020 winners of the Awards for Publication Excellence.
LIMRA MarketFacts took home awards in two categories:
- Overall Magazine (32+ pages)—for Issue 4 of 2019, which included a cover story on diversity and inclusion in the financial services industry.
- Design and Illustration—for the cover of Issue 3 of 2019, which had an illustration on the gig economy.
“We are thrilled to be honored with these awards,” said Mary-Beth Selby, editor-in-chief of MarketFacts. “The articles in the winning issues of MarketFacts focus on the potential of the financial services industry—from how diversity and inclusion can benefit companies, customers and stakeholders, to lessons from InsurTech giant Lemonade and the benefits of companies being purpose driven.”
LOMA Resource magazine won an Award of Excellence in the Technology Writing category for the article, “Technology and the Future.” The article, written by Resource Senior Editor Tammy Appel, featured interviews with seven life insurance industry analysts about hot topics like blockchain, InsurTech and cybersecurity.
“We know our members are very interested to learn how emerging technologies can improve business processes and drive growth,” Appel says. “We were fortunate to work with industry experts who could share their perspective and practical knowledge about how technology can address current and future business challenges, open up new opportunities to engage consumers, increase efficiencies and lead to more profitable growth.”
