CELEBRATING TEN YEARS OF THE SCOTTISH MAGAZINE AWARDS
We are delighted to announce that we are now accepting entries for the Scottish Magazine Awards. This is the 10th anniversary of the Awards in Scotland and, as we're sure you will agree, is testament not only to the strength of the industry, but also to the outstanding quality of magazine publishing in Scotland today.
The Scottish Magazine Awards are a great opportunity for your magazines, your designers, editors, writers, sales and commercial staff to be recognised for the extraordinary work you’ve all done over the past year, which has helped to make Scotland a hotbed for time honoured publishing as well as up-and-coming talent.
Back by popular demand is the Small Publishing Company Magazine category, reinstated to recognise the wonderful work that those of you with four or fewer employees do. For those of you in the commercial side of the business, the new category of Publishing Star will recognise the crucial role you play. Last year you loved the Best Magazine Cover category, so to celebrate our 10 th anniversary, we’ve also introduced – for one year only – the Magazine Cover of the Decade. So delve through your archives to see if you can win this truly special accolade.
