AMA 2017 HEADER

The Australian Magazine Awards (AMAs) provide Australian magazine publishers with the opportunity to be rewarded and recognised for their excellence. Since its launch in 2009 the awards have gone from strength to strength to become the respected, credible and independent magazine awards program that it is today.

In 2017 the program evolved with the focus shifting to championing magazines' overall brands rather than just their printed offerings, and to include B2B publishing as well as consumer. As a publisher ourselves we're acutely aware of the shifting landscape and know that titles are made up of more than what's on the printed page. With the program now taking a brand's social, events, digital offering as well as circulation and readership.
