The Australian Magazine Awards are open for entries

By AdNews | 8 August 2017

The 2017 Australian Magazine Awards are back to celebrate brilliance in publishing.

We want to recognise the premium, professionally produced content being created across the industry.

We’ve added new categories this year including Best Launch/Innovation/Brand Extension, this could be things like branded podcasts, and Best Feature Article, to recognise the quality content being produced.

We’ve also seen that there is incredible work being done by B2B publishers in the business press, and that deserves recognition too, so we’ve added B2B/Business Magazine Brand of the Year, B2B Event of the Year, B2B, and B2B Editor of the Year.

Entries are open from today until Tuesday 26 September. The full list of categories are below.

You can find the entry kit here.

Last year, News Corp CDO Nicole Sheffield was honoured into the Hall of Fame and delivered a passionate address to the industry - to value the people that consume their products and content - not the ratings. 

Who do you think should be nominated for Hall of Fame this year for their contribution to the magazine industry? We’re looking for people whose careers have been dedicated to magazine publishing and whose contribution has shaped the industry. You can email AdNews Publisher James Yaffa or Editor Rosie Baker with nominations.

Previous inductees into the AMA Hall of Fame include Donna Hay (2015), Jackie Frank (2014), Julia Zaetta (2013) and Ita Buttrose (2012).

“The Australian Magazine awards celebrate brilliance in the publishing world. Every year the submissions entered into the AMA’s shows how innovative and dynamic the Australian magazine industry is. This year will be no different,” says James Yaffa, AdNews and AMA publisher.  

“We’ve introduced new categories this year to recognise the evolution of magazine brands

We want to recognise that there’s great work going on in B2B publishing, as well as celebrate the innovations publishers are introducing to their business future proof their brands, and highlight the value of premium, professionally produced content.”
