AFAmag Excel Winner

Unleashed congratulations to the Air Force Association (AFA) for its recent Excel Award win. The Air Force Magazine website has won gold in Software and Information Industries Association’s (SIIA) AM&P Network 2021 Excel Awards in the Website (Magazine) category.

After earning honors in the 2020 Davey Awards, the Air Force Magazine is recognized again for its user-centric WordPress website with engaging and responsive design that delivers a world-class reader experience to visitors and members. In addition, the website’s robust database pairs with industry-leading web technology that allows users to conduct detailed and thorough searches of the site and quickly read content dating back to 1995.

The EXCEL Awards are the largest and most prestigious program recognizing excellence and leadership in association media, publishing, marketing, and communication. The 2021 winners endured a two-round evaluation process from a panel of more than 80 judges. This is the awards 41st year sanctioned by SIIA.

Unleashed is committed to bringing the best web technology to our clients and implementing those advanced tools in a way that serves their communities and business goals. The partnership between Air Force Magazine and Unleashed is an opportunity for both organizations. AFA continues to embrace the future and digital transformation of its magazine, while the technology firm continues to grow its expertise to support AFA and ensure the association meets its digital goals.

"We have so much appreciation and respect for the Excel Awards,” said Michael Spinosa, president of Unleashed. “As long-time members of the association community, we are especially proud of this recognition and the hard work put in by the talented team at AFA and at Unleashed. This is an excellent example of how collaboration can produce excellence.”

Unleashed is honored to add another trophy to its collection. This win is particularly special as it will be the firm’s first gold-level Excel award. In all, the company has won more than 30 awards during its history.
