Magazine Awards Shortlisting for Scots Duo

An UK-wide magazine competition for smaller-scale publishers has two Scots outfits among its shortlist.

Think Publishing – which is headquartered in London but boasts a Scotland division – and Clash Magazine have both reached the final of the Independent Publisher Awards, an 'independent' essentially being a single publishing company with a turnover of under £7 million. The awards are being organised by the Periodical Publishers Association.

While music magazine, Clash, is nominated in the Online Brand of the Year category, Think Scotland is nominated in the Customer Mag category for Discover NLS [National Library of Scotland]. Its London office is in the running for Individual Achievement Award, Designer of the Year, Customer Magazine of the Year (a second nomination) and Independent Publishing Company of the Year.

The winners are being announced at a ceremony in London on the first of next month.
