Scottish Magazine Awards 2015 open for entries

The Scottish Magazine Awards 2015 are now open for entries.
Any title published at least twice a year and no more frequently than once a week is eligible to enter the awards run by PPA (the Professional Publishers Association) Scotland.
According to organisers, it’s a great opportunity to recognise the magazines, brands and companies at the forefront of the industry, as well as the work of individuals such as designers, editors, writers, and sales and commercial staff.
New for this year are two extra categories: Innovation of the Year, which will recognise the work done to connect with audiences, grow the business and open up new revenue streams, and Publishing Team of the Year, which will honour either a whole publishing company or specific area of the business, such as subscriptions, circulation or accounts.
The deadline for entries, which can be submitted via the website, is Friday, October 16 2015.
The subsequent awards ceremony and black-tie gala dinner will be held on Wednesday, December 16 at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh and are set to be hosted by comedian, writer and actor Sanjeev Kohli.
