Celebrating the very best of the best across the industry, the PPA Awards 2019 will now reflect more accurately the true breadth of talent and roles that drive publishing success today. With a revamped set of categories, now, the PPA Digital Awards is integrated, which will no longer take place in the autumn. Similarly, the annual PPA MagSell Awards for retail excellence and the PPA Customer Direct Awards for subscriptions specialists will now both be incorporated into this one giant stand-out celebration of industry talent in June.
The PPA Awards judging panel is made up of senior figures from the industry, and they are looking for the people, the brands, and the professional publishing companies who really deserve to stand out and be celebrated for their outstanding achievements and relentless commitment to excellence.
The event provides a good opportunity for the brands – and the individuals within them – to gain national recognition for their outstanding achievements over the past 12 months. There are a total of 19 categories this year across a variety of disciplines within consumer, business and customer publishing.
The event is powered by PPA, which stands for the UK’s Professional Publishers, a firm that represents more than 200 publishing companies, covering everything from large consumer magazine publishers to B2B information and data providers, to smaller independents. The company promotes the industry to key stakeholder groups, protects its members through work with Government and other agencies, and it advances its members’ interests at all times.
“This is the big one. We’ve actually won quite a lot of awards but these are the ones we boast about to our readers and to the market.”
Pete Muir, Editor Cyclist, Dennis Publishing
“Instead of four different awards shows we will now have one truly Grand Prix event that celebrates the very best of the best across all of our constituencies. To win one of these new PPA Awards really will be the ultimate accolade for anyone working anywhere within professional publishing.” Barry McIlheney, PPA CEO
