This Award is for the business magazine with a circulation of more than 5,000 published monthly or at least four times per year that most clearly demonstrates excellence in its market. The winning magazine will demonstrate audience retention or growth, robust market share and competitive positioning, as well as sound commercial results. This will all be built on a foundation of outstanding editorial and design, together with a sure understanding of the needs of the audience.
Although the judges will note how effectively the brand has been developed across other platforms, the focus for this entry is on magazine excellence, either as a digital edition and/or in print.
Judges will assess overall performance during the past year, including circulation and readership figures and achievement within the magazine’s competitive set, and commercial performance during the past year, including relevant financial and yield data. Judges will also take into account how each entrant has dealt with the challenges faced during the past year.
