Presenting the winners of Ragan’s 2014 Content Marketing Awards

We opened the gates and created an awards program to showcase marketing and communications professionals who write, edit, film, and publish content that promotes a brand or organization.

The entries that came in were creative and useful—content marketing at its best.

We saw websites, blogs, videos, infographics, publications, and of course the best overall in the Grand Prize category of Best Content Marketing Series.

This inaugural year of the Content Marketing Awards showed that we’ve made a very fair start in this area. We cannot wait to see what 2015 will bring to the table.

And now…the winners and honorable mentions in Ragan’s 2014 Content Marketing Awards!

Please join us in congratulating them.
