SIGNAL Media receives three awards for publication excellence (APEX).

We often report on the success of military and industry members. However, every now and then we like to highlight the accomplishments of our very own. Earlier this summer, the SIGNAL Media team was awarded not one, not two, but three Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX).

With more than 1,200 entries from outstanding publications, our team was thrilled to be recognized for the hard work and talent that it takes to execute every one of our projects. 

First up, Director of Digital News Media Kimberly Underwood was recognized for her writing of the Air Force Addresses Zero Trust series. Kim has been with SIGNAL Media since August 2017 and has been a pillar in the growth of our digital presence. 

Second, the entire SIGNAL staff was awarded for the SIGNAL and AFCEA social media sites. This would not have been possible without our rockstar Social Media Manager Rachel Lilly, who has been with the company for more than 10 years. 

Last and certainly never least, SIGNAL Kids was named a One-Of-A-Kind publication. Written by and for students ages 8-12, SIGNAL Kids offers career ideas, technology stories, fun facts and puzzles focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The true winners of this award are our kid reporters who take the time to learn, interview and write about military and industry topics. We also must give a special shoutout to Art Director Chris D’Elia, for his creative brain behind all magazine imagery; Bodil Lund, director of media sales, strategy and BrandLink, for her work to keep the magazine alive through sponsors and advertisers; and again, Rachel Lilly, the editor and brains behind SIGNAL Kids Magazine. 

We cannot speak of our accomplishments without noting the leadership of our former and recently retired editor in chief Robert K. Ackerman. It is with his 35 years of service and leadership at AFCEA and SIGNAL Magazine that our team has continued to deliver important and factual news, analysis and perspectives in the world of cyber, defense, security, intelligence and more. 

Success only happens with a strong team behind it and ours truly is the best. We, at SIGNAL Media, are your award-winning, unbiased and ethical reporters. And if you haven’t already, you can subscribe to our magazines here.
