Award Season Is Coming

Every year, Intermedia Brand Marketing joins independent publishers across the country to celebrate the magazine industry through ACE’s Newspaper and Magazine Awards and the PPA Awards.

The ACE Awards

For 69 years, ACE’s Newspaper and Magazine Awards have been the highest accolade of the publishing industry, with last years winners including Guardian Weekly for their sales growth and Marketforce for being the strongest supply chain of the year. This year, we will gather at the prestigious Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington on Thursday 2nd April for a roaring 20’s themed evening of joy.

The PPA Awards 

Each year, the Professional Publishers Association hosts the esteemed PPA Awards, a night which commemorates the tireless work of those in the publishing industry. On June 30th, the PPA Awards turns 40, so it is guaranteed to be a huge night of celebration. Last year, Intermedia’s very own Wanderlust won the esteemed ‘Team of the Year’ award, and we are hoping many more of our publishers will see the same success this year.

This year’s categories for both ceremonies are listed below, if any of Intermedia’s clients would like to enter please get in touch.
