SAN FRANCISCO – Praetorian Digital, the leading digital media company in the public safety and local government market, today announced that it has been named a finalist in three categories for the 2018 FOLIO Eddie and Ozzie Awards, with two nods for PoliceOne.com and one for EMS1.com. The largest media publishing awards program, the Eddies and Ozzies recognize the very best in editorial and design across the magazine and online media industry.

PoliceOne.com and EMS1.com were named finalists in the following categories:

“We are honored to be nominated for three Eddie Awards. Each of our nominees is richly deserving and emblematic of the editorial quality we strive for,” said Jon Hughes, Vice President of Content for Praetorian Digital. “While these nominations recognize PoliceOne and EMS1 by name, this is confirmation our team’s hard work and commitment to providing top-notch editorial content to our audience of first responders is hitting its goal.”

In 2017, Praetorian received four Eddie nominations, winning the award in two categories: Best Video (PoliceOne.com) and Best Digital Magazine (EMS1.com).

With an average of 5 million unique visitors per month and over 1.3 million registered members, Praetorian Digital’s web properties have become the leading online news and information resource for first responders and local government officials across the U.S.

The winners will be announced Oct. 9 at the annual Folio Awards Gala in New York City.
