Mag awards deadline looming

SCOTLAND’S magazine editors have until Friday to enter this year’s Scottish Magazine Awards.

Say organisers, the Periodical Publishers Association: “If you are proud of your editorial features; have extended your branding; maintained or increased circulation and sales; delivered on your client’s brief or simply upheld the highest possible standards in publishing, then we want to hear from you.”

The judging panel includes David Hanger, president of the European Federation of Magazine Publishers, Jill Taylor of IPA Scotland and managing director of Family Advertising; Trevor Royle, associate editor of the Sunday Herald; and Peter Martin, head of magazines at Menzies Distribution. Terry Mansfield – managing director of the National Magazine Company – is its chair.

The final is on November 29.
