The Magazine Publishers Association is delighted to announce the call for entries for the 2013 Magazine Awards. The MPA’s Awards Committee has spent the past 6 months reviewing the awards categories and entry documents, to ensure that they remain relevant and current to the changing world of magazine publishing.
“The review of the Magazine Awards has been extensive, including a major research project undertaken in 2012. The goal was to elevate the status and credibility of the awards by focussing on the award criteria and judging process. The outcome is fewer but more prestigious awards and a judging process with a greater emphasis on peer review. We have struck a good balance between recognising the “craft” of magazine publishing and the commercial drivers of the category. The next stage is a ground up review of the event itself to ensure it reflects the contemporary and sophisticated nature of the magazine industry.” Said Lynley Belton who led the awards review and represents Fairfax Magazines on the MPA Board.
The awards promote magazine media to readers and advertisers by celebrating excellence, innovation and consistency. The awards will honour magazines that consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, journalistic enterprise, innovative techniques to support the titles, imaginative creativity and commercial success.

The Magazine Awards will be held on Thursday 26th September.
