The Livestock Publications Council (LPC) is an international organization that serves the dynamic communications industry that spans all species of livestock. Since 1974 it has been a vital force in the livestock publication field, involving scholastic and governmental matters with a focus on aiding its members to improve their publications esthetically, fi- nancially, and in content. Through a judged contest, it annually honors the best of the best. In August we earned top honors for our National Show coverage (September 2017) and our 2017 World Show Event Program. Putting together comprehensive event coverage touches almost every department of the ApHC. From the data and results, to proofing and verification, it truly is a total team effort. To say nothing of actually putting on an exceptional event to be covered. Every association does this kind of coverage — hogs, cattle, goats, etc. and of course all the horse breeds. I'm so proud of our magazine team for presenting it better than everyone else, and thankful to the whole ApHC team because it wouldn't be possible without them. Winning awards like this is prestige on a level that I hope makes every member, sub- scriber and lover of Appaloosas proud! We remain true and successful in our mission to serve and celebrate the membership and to put our breed front and center. We share this celebration and are ever grateful to our supporters.
