The Australian Magazine Awards, presented by AdNews and Nielsen, are back for 2018 and are now open for entry.
Our reinvigorated Awards program will see the event switch from a formal breakfast to an evening awards ceremony and party on 22 November at Ovolo, Woolloomooloo.
As a nod to multi-channel publishing, we have for the first time created a category for digital-only magazine brands, while we have expanded the Special Interest brand award to also include Hobbyist brands.
In-keeping with a desire to ensure the awards are fast-paced and fresh, AMA organisers have shed a few categories and pared down the schedule, leaving more time for celebration.
AMA organisers would like to thank presenting partner for 2018 - Nielsen, our founding partner Magazine Networks, and our continuing supporting sponsors Bluestar Web and Gordon and Gotch. We thank you for your support of our much-loved program. We would also like to thank friend of the AMAs - Rachel's List.
Entries are open from today until 28 Friday September. The full list of categories is below.
You can find the ENTRY KIT here.
Our esteemed panel of 20 judges will be unveiled soon.
The event will take place on November 22 at Ovolo, Woolloomooloo. Tickets to the event can be purchased here.
Last year’s winners, which included Taste.com.au, Elle, Coles magazine and Men’s Health, are listed here.
