Loaded has scored a double first at the PPA Magazines ’96 Awards by

taking the top prize of Consumer Magazine of the Year for the second

year running and Publisher of the Year.



James Brown, the editor of the IPC magazine, collected the award in

front of a crowd of around 1,200 people, while the magazine’s publisher

Andy McDuff received the Publisher of the Year prize.



McDuff was commended by the judges for creating an environment where

‘creativity flourishes and business goals are met and surpassed’.



Among the judges were Universal McCanns’ managing director, Trista

Grant, and Campaign’s editorial director, Dominic Mills.



A spokesman for the judges said that, as Loaded was last year’s winner,

all of their instincts were against awarding it the top prize again.

‘It’s a measure of the phenomenon of Loaded that we still couldn’t find

a reason, in the light of its success in 1995, for it not to win,’ the

spokesman said.



The Builder’s Group’s Property Week took the award for Business and

Professional Magazine of the Year, having successfully made the move

from a controlled circulation to a paid-for title in 1995. The judges

said the circulation figures spoke for themselves.



Susan Downey, the publisher of Reed Business Publishing’s Personnel

Today and Community Care, took home the award for publisher of the year

in the business and professional magazines category.



The Radio Times editor, Nicholas Brett, was awarded the Editor of the

Year prize. He was commended for maintaining circulation growth in an

increasingly competitive market.



In the business and professional sector, Peter Knutton of Works

Management, published by Findlay Publications, won the Editor of the

Year award.
