Diablo Custom Publishing Honored With Two Pearl Awards From the Custom Content Council

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Diablo Custom Publishing (DCP) has received two Pearl Awards from the Custom Content Council (CCC). DCP was chosen to receive the awards for Best Achievement of Corporate Objectives for John Muir Health Magazine and Best Interactive Content for its newly released Advanced Tablet App. The Pearl Awards celebrate the best in custom media, design, editorial, digital content, and strategic initiatives for B2B and B2C publications. Finalists were selected from 628 entries from 15 countries. The awards ceremony will be held November 5, 2012, in New York City.

In 2004, to herald the commitment to excellence and the growing success of custom publishing, the CCC launched the first award program devoted exclusively to custom publishing. Custom content providers—small and large; B2B and B2C; representing clients in a wide range of industries; and producing magazines, newsletters, and web publications—have responded. In 2004, 250 entries were submitted; this year, the entry count reached over 600, which demonstrates the incredible growth of custom publishing and content marketing.

“Receiving these Pearl Awards reinforces DCP’s commitment to producing the highest-quality projects for our clients,” notes Barney Fonzi, Group Publisher for Diablo Publications. “Winning awards in the categories of Best Achievement of Corporate Objectives, and Interactive Content for DCP’s tablet app demonstrates our ability to adapt to the changing custom content marketplace, as customers look for new and strategic solutions to further their reach and customer engagement.”
