altech[Dublin, Ireland] – Alltech and the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists (IAEJ) are pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Alltech ‘A+’ Awards for outstanding coverage of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy.
The A+ Awards were established in 2010 by Alltech, in collaboration with the IAEJ, to reward creativity, passion and excellence in equestrian journalism. The focus of the awards program this year was the World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France.
The highly competitive contest, which attracted entries from around the world, was judged by Grania Willis, FEI communications director; Alan Smith, former Daily Telegraph equestrian correspondent and photographer Peter Llewellyn, photo manager for the 2012 London Olympic and 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games. “We witnessed tremendous equestrian athleticism and dedication during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, but behind the scenes there were some heroes. Those heroes were the journalists in the press centre, who battled the elements and survived on very little sleep in order to deliver the triumphant stories and unforgettable images of the Games to fans throughout the world,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “We are delighted to honour these equestrian sport journalists for their passionate dedication and skilled storytelling.”
The winners of this year’s Alltech A+ Award are:
