The first award went to Anthem’s Marketing team who were crowned Subscriptions Team of the Year.
The judges commented, “Our congratulations to the marketing team and all at Anthem Publishing who are clearly a committed and unified team achieving excellent results. The judges felt the great team spirit and collaboration demonstrated alongside new initiatives and revenue growth, were superb results for a small team. It was refreshing to hear the team story and view a very well put together presentation of team structure, dynamics, internal management support and success.”
The second award was for Lifestyle Magazine of the Year, which was awarded to Women’s Running.
The judges explained why Women’s Running stood out for them:”Our congratulations to the team at Women’s Running who applied solid customer research to achieve strong results. Judges felt the new cover was very appealing, particularly to the younger audience the title sought to attract. It cannot be lost on the target audience that this was a re-launch and re-design of a magazine by women for women achieving a higher cover price and 59% increase in sales. Readership was further engaged through new awards, supplements and cost-effective promotions, whilst the publisher expended concerted efforts to reduce waste helping the bottom line.”
We’re so proud of both teams!
