Coraopolis, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- RGS received a 2011 Grand Award from Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX) for its 50th anniversary publication.

What makes the award even more special is that it was selected from more than 247 entries in the One-of-a Kind publication category.

(A total of 100 APEX Grand Awards were presented in 11 major categories). As the only conservation group to receive a Grand Award for a magazine, RGS was honored to be selected. Nearly 3,300 entries in total were submitted to the award competition.

Now in its 23rd year, the APEX awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content and the success of the entry in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. In announcing the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) winning entry, the published comment from the panel of judges read: “Top-drawer coffee table material. The photo spreads, illustrations and type all blend together to create a visual feast.”

“That’s quite an acclamation,” stated RGS President and CEO Mike Zagata when learning of the presentation. We are honored to receive this prestigious award, and I want to thank everyone who had a hand in making this one-of-a-kind publication memorable. Along with uncovering the rich history of RGS, the 50th Anniversary limited edition contains articles and photographs on grouse; American woodcock and the dog’s hunters use to seek them out. It is in a nutshell a definitive guide to grouse hunting and more, with stories written by renowned outdoor writers on shotgunning, bird dogs and hunting — everything you need to know to take your hunt to the next level, including expert field advice from our biologists that will certainly help you put more of these legendary game birds on the ground and on the table”.

“We’re proud recipients of the APEX Grand Award, not only because it honors our 50th Anniversary Publication – which was quite a milestone for our organization – but also because it recognizes the importance of the mission to which we are all dedicated, the creation of young forest habitat,” says Anna Stubna, Editor.

The limited edition 50 Anniversary publication is available for $14.95 on the RGS website at: http://tiny.cc/kf7vu . All major credit cards accepted.

Established in 1961, the Ruffed Grouse Society is the one international wildlife conservation organization dedicated to promoting conditions suitable for ruffed grouse, American woodcock and related wildlife to sustain our sport hunting tradition and outdoor heritage.
