For the purpose of this Award, a customer magazine is a magazine (as opposed to a brochure, catalogue or newsletter), published at least twice a year by or on behalf of an organisation to communicate with its customers or its staff. The judges will assess how the magazine meets the organisation’s marketing and communication needs, and how it has delivered against clear and specific objectives. The winning magazine will add significant value to the customer’s or staff member’s relationship with the organisation and demonstrate all round excellence in its editorial, production and publishing values.
Please note that this category is open to both consumer-facing and Business Media titles.
Judges will assess overall performance during the past year, including increased sales where relevant, together with customer loyalty and customer satisfaction as measured by original third party research. Judges will also take into account how each entrant has dealt with the challenges faced during the past year.
Please note that this category is open to both consumer and business magazines.
