The Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA) honors its media members’ creative works annually with the presentation of the POMA Pinnacle Awards. Although the individual POMA member is honored, the publication, network, or online entity that buys and prints or broadcasts the works also are recognized.
POMA and Pinnacle Award title partner Mossy Oak are proud to distinguish the 14 media outlets responsible for this year’s award-winning works begin delivered to the public.
