Hunters Run Magazine, a publication for members of Hunters Run Country Club in Boynton Beach, was recently a recipient of a Gold Award at the Florida Media Conference in Sarasota.
Receiving the top honor in the Niche Publication category, the Florida Media Conference judges selected the Hunter Run Magazine’s issues in September-October 2019 and 2020 for publications with circulation under 50,000. Due to the conference being canceled last year, the contest consisted of entries between April 2019 and April 2021.
Milestone Memories featured stories from club members about their recent vacations, including chronicles of trips to Alaska, Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon.
“Our members are so involved with the magazine and the club management is so supportive of that — which from what I understand is rather unusual for club magazines,” Hunters Run Magazine editor Stanley Walker said. “Most club magazines are promoting what’s going on at the club, different activities at the club. This magazine tries to involve the members.
“It’s the best part about it,” he said. “When we sit around and think about our ideas that we want to share with all the members here, it’s the hope we’re going to get a response that’s going to make an interesting feature and an interesting issue. The Gold Award that the Hunters Run Magazine received reflects what our club really is all about. The award-winning issue, as well as all the other issues we produce, contains human interest articles about members, for members, with an underlying goal of bringing all our residents closer together within our community.”
On behalf of the magazine, EG Communications Group, which is responsible for the design, layout and printing of the publication, accepted the award at the conference.
The volunteer-led magazine publishes issues six times a year and includes a different theme for each magazine.
