AMP leads Calendar Marketing Association awards

Andrews McMeel Publishing (AMP) has won 12 awards in the Calendar Marketing Association’s 30th Annual International Award Program. This is the most awards for any one company in the program’s Retail division.

The Calendar Marketing Association (CMA) is the official and exclusive organization dedicated to marketing and promoting calendars. It has recognized AMP’s outstanding efforts for more than 20 years.

“Entering the Calendar Marketing Association awards has become a tradition for us,” said Michael Nonbello, vice president and creative director of AMP’s Calendar Group. “It’s nice to be recognized for what we do.”

AMP is honored to receive the distinctions, and values the opportunity to see how its calendars rate against other winners, Nonbello said. AMP congratulates all of its creators and associates who contributed to this success.

The awards program acknowledges the artistic and technical talents of calendar publishers in three divisions (Retail, Custom Corporate and Promotional), five classes (Daily Box, Desk, Planner Pocket, Poster and Wall) and numerous categories.
