For the sixth consecutive year, Newstex has been recognized as a digital content industry leader having been named to the 2011 EContent list of 100 companies that matter most in the digital content industry.

The 100 companies that made it on the 2011 list were chosen by a panel of judges that included editors from Information Today, Inc and EContent magazine as well as experts from the digital content industry. You can read the full press release here.

The release of the 2011 list of 100 companies that matter most in the digital content industry marks the eleventh time the list has been compiled, but for the first time this year, the judges focused more on the world of digital publishing and media and less on enterprise content companies. As such, many new companies made it on the list for the first time this year, while others that have been on the list multiple times, such as Newstex, held their spots.

Newstex President Larry Scwhartz explains how the company has managed to get on the EContent 100 list for six years running.

“Since Newstex debuted in 2004, we’ve focused on finding new ways to collect, enhance, and distribute quality content to people who need it. In 2011, Newstex expanded its mobile, video, Twitter, online magazine, and blog syndication content offerings, giving thousands of content publishers broader exposure for their hard work and giving end-users new ways to engage with that content. Being named to the EContent 100 list for the sixth year in a row is an honor that validates the work we’ve been doing to get Authoritative Content in front of audiences who need it to do their jobs but might not find it otherwise.”

Congratulations to Newstex and all of the companies that were named on of the 100 content companies that matter most in 2011! You can see the full EContent 100 list here.
