Editor of the year (Business Media)


This category rewards the outstanding business editor of the year. Sureness of touch, enterprise and imagination, a clear understanding of market needs, and a commitment to excellence will all be key factors. Judges will focus on the personal contribution of the editor to the successful innovation, new developments, and consistent all-round quality which put the brand above its competitors, taking into account the overall quality of journalism, significant successful editorial developments and initiatives, the relevance of content to the title’s audience and the editor’s knowledge of, involvement in and influence on the market. Entries should also show evidence of the editor’s commercial awareness and an innovative approach to extending the brand across other platforms.

Judges will assess overall presentation, performance during the past year, including circulation and readership figures and achievement within the brand’s competitive set, and readership approval, 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 enter nominees for one brand/title only. Any individual may enter this category only once.
