New York Family, published by Schneps Media, has made investments and seen tremendous growth of its digital division, including the company website, email newsletters, and social channels. That paid off with NewYorkFamily.com being recognized with a first-place Gold Award. 

“We are everywhere parents consume content: in print with a quality glossy magazine, online with a nationally-recognized website, email newsletters, social media channels, webinars on topics relevant to parents and the region’s largest Camp Expos,” said group publisher and COO Clifford Luster.
