MILWAUKEE – Editor & Publisher Magazine, along with 50 judges, named OnMilwaukee the winner of a 2016 EPPY Award and a top three finalist for another award this afternoon.
After several weeks of in-depth and thorough judging, the E&P team, along with the prestigious panel of judges, voted for and selected the 2016 EPPY Award finalists from more than 300 entries competing in 31 diverse categories.
OnMilwaukee, a digital media company and daily magazine and city guide, took home the award for Best Online Media Kit with under 1 million unique monthly visitors and was a top three finalist for Best Digital Magazine with under 1 million unique monthly visitors.
2016 marks the fourth EPPY-winning year for OnMilwaukee. The Milwaukee-based digital media company also took top honors in 2015, 2012 and 2008, and was a finalist in 2003, 2008, 2012 and 2014. OnMilwaukee is one of only two publications in Wisconsin to win an award this year. OnMilwaukee won Best Digital Magazine with under 1 million unique monthly visitors in 2015.
"We've worked hard every day for more than 18 years to build a product we all believe in," said OnMilwaukee co-founder and publisher Andy Tarnoff. "It's great to be recognized by our peers again, both in producing the magazine and telling our company's story through our new media kit."
"We've built an amazing community powered by content that connects on a deep level. It's a testament to our play book and our collaborative team here at OnMilwaukee," said co-founder and president Jeff Sherman. "Web, social, mobile – everyone truly played a part in this honor, and we thank them all."

Now in its 21st year, this international contest honors the best digital-media websites. The awards also recognize excellence in college and university journalism in three different categories.
Each EPPY entry is judged on its own merits within a particular category. Finalists must receive a score in the top one-third of the average score across all categories within their division (1 million and over unique monthly visitors and under 1 million unique monthly visitors). As a result, there may be no winner in categories not reaching this threshold.
