Nashville Parent Brings Home the Gold — Again!

Nashville Parent's popular "Family Manual" ranks #1 in the country ... plus more awards!

In its 29th year of publication as Middle Tennessee’s number one source of parenting news and information, Nashville Parent continues its winning streak with more Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. Nashville Parent is published by Day Communications, Inc., a local family-owned company comprised of editors, designers and sales staff.

Nashville Parent brought home 11 national awards from the 2022 Parenting Media Association’s (PMA) annual conference that took place Nov. 10-12 in Denver, Colorado. The PMA is a nonprofit trade organization that represents the regional family media market. Parenting publication members from across the nation submit hundreds of entries for Design and Editorial Awards encompassing their best print and digital products of the year. Professors from the prestigious Missouri School of Journalism, located at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, judge the entries.

“This year’s winners reflect a continually changing industry,” says Susan Day, long-time award-winning editor of Nashville Parent. “It’s no secret that publishers everywhere are adapting to meet the changing print/digital moments. But print is still king and this year’s winning parenting publications represent the highest-quality content being produced; we are thrilled to be in that company,” she adds.
