CAMPAIGN PRESS ADVERTISING AWARDS 1999: Sponsor profiles

I wrote it last year about the 25th anniversary press awards, but this year’s press awards prove once again that the standard in the UK is extraordinarily high.

I wrote it last year about the 25th anniversary press awards, but

this year’s press awards prove once again that the standard in the UK is

extraordinarily high.



Led by BMP DDB’s outstanding Volkswagen work, press advertising at its

best is capable of a wit and pithiness currently lacking in much of our

broadcast output.



Our eclectic jury, ably led by Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe’s Robert

Campbell, found much worth rewarding over two days of judging in the

wilds of wintry Battersea. Our thanks to all of them - particularly

those who managed to judge and take part in almost simultaneous pitches

for BT.



This year, in the interests of simplicity, we have abandoned the most

successful agency award across the four main press sectors (national

newspapers, consumer magazines, regional newspapers and business

magazines) but have retained product categories.



We would also like to thank our sponsors, who have once again

contributed to making the event such a success. They are profiled in

brief over the succeeding pages.

Capital Print & Display



Capital Print & Display, which specialises in large format poster and

point-of-purchase printing, was founded in 1980 by David Gill, the

managing director. Focusing initially on screen-printing, it quickly

added large and small format litho to its capability. In 1988, the

company moved into its current premises in Stratford, where it occupies

an 84,000 sq ft factory.



Because Capital Print & Display combines screen and large and small

format litho printing, it has the capacity to deal with complete

campaigns, from the smallest jobs such as shelf-edge POP to the largest

96-sheet posters.



Though the format or the substrate might change, one thing never does -

quality. Rigorous quality control systems mean that colour consistency -

a critical requirement for any client - is always perfect.



The state-of-the-art in-house digital pre-press studio is fully equipped

with Apple Power Macs, planning, equipment for reprographics, colour

proofing and plate-making.



A key component of Capital Print & Display’s business philosophy is

service. The company operates 24 hours a day - including its customer

service team. This attitude is summarised by David Gill: ’Get it right,

not only the first time, but every time.’’



The company’s clients are blue-chip companies drawn from a wide range of

sectors including fashion, food, retailing and cosmetics. As well as

serving the needs of direct clients, it also works with many leading

advertising agencies. A dedicated account handler ensures that Capital

Print & Display meets the specialist requirements and fast turnarounds

needed by agencies.

Financial Times



The Financial Times, the world’s leading business newspaper, is read by

more than one million people in 140 countries worldwide, serviced by 12

international print centres and a sophisticated distribution system.



In addition to more than 300 full-time journalists, it has more than 40

full-time foreign correspondents based in major cities across the

globe.



The FT provides readers with the most accurate and comprehensive global

business information, analysis and comment. Richard Lambert, the editor,

says: ’We aim to put national business news into an international

context by pulling together the unique resource of our international

network of correspondents and specialist reporters.’



The FT ’s commitment to global expansion and internationalism is

reflected in its sales outside the UK which grew 27 per cent year on

year. (Source: ABC August 1998-January 1999 versus August 1997-January

1998.)



However, the FT continues to focus strongly on the UK as well as

internationally and this has resulted in continuing success. The FT is

The Guardian



The past 12 months proved to be another important year for The

Guardian.



Awarded Newspaper of the Year by What the Papers Say, The Guardian again

illustrated its credentials for investigative reporting by exposing a

faked documentary from Carlton TV, Peter Mandelson’s acceptance of a

secret loan and worrying information on genetically modified food.



In addition to brave news reporting, the launch of the Editor, The

Guardian’s weekly digest of the best of the world’s media, confirmed its

reputation for innovation and product development in newspapers. The

launch of our network of internet sites Guardian Unlimited has taken

this reputation from traditional to new media and was described by Steve

Outing, a leading US online media analyst, as: ’An outstanding web

service and an example to the rest of the news industry about how to

craft a quality web presence.’ Strategic marketing activity served to

strengthen brand values and to widen the net of readers. A new

advertising campaign with the line ’The Guardian. Free thinkers welcome’

was launched through Partners BDDH. In the clutter and competitive fray

of the newspaper market, where sections are cloned, writers poached and

readers assaulted with a never-ending parade of promotions, price-cuts

and offers, this campaign once again articulates what makes The

Guardian, as a newspaper and brand, unique.



The Summer Festivals Guide and sponsorship of the Glastonbury festival

extended awareness of the brand to new audiences, while high-profile

film interviews at the National Film Theatre and the on-going

association with Channel 4’s Film Four, enhanced the reputation of The

Guardian as the authority on the arts. Innovative promotions provided

added value for readers through band-on CDs, exclusive offers and

serialisations.



It is our core commitment to quality writing and to creative innovation

that makes The Guardian proud to be the sponsor of the Best

Advertisement in National Newspapers category.

The Mail on Sunday



Sunday 7 March saw The Mail on Sunday reshape its already successful

portfolio of sections in order to improve editorial content and provide

even greater value for readers and advertisers in a new and exciting

package.



Our commitment to good writing, innovation, reader empathy and

substantial investment has ensured sales are at an all-time high of 2.3

million (ABC August to January 1999) so this latest rationalisation is

about building on a heritage of success.



Night & Day has adopted our seven-day TV listings and acquired new

glossy covers. The pace of the magazine has changed with the

introduction of new regular columns that punctuate provocative features

and interviews with the world’s most sought-after stars.



The new 32-page Review in the newspaper offers the country’s best

features writers an opportunity to take a broader look at the issues

behind the news. It also gives our critics the chance to be totally up

to date. Deadlines are now a full week later than previously, lending

more credibility to our arts coverage.



You and Financial Mail on Sunday each continue to play a vital role.



Since 1994 they have undoubtedly been key to increasing circulation in a

significant and sustainable fashion. On average 5 per cent extra every

year.



The future is never certain but by always being sensitive to the needs

of our six million readers, The Mail on Sunday continues to be a sound

investment.

The National Magazine Company



Every month six million people pick up a title published by The National

Magazine Company and it’s important to us that our advertising pages

look and feel as good as the magazines themselves.



After all, they have to. A third of all Great Britain’s women come to us

for inspiration. They spend pounds 266 million on cosmetics, pounds 323

million on skincare and a staggering pounds 2.5 billion on fashion items

(according to TGI). And let’s not forget the men. 1.3 million of them

enjoy some of the UK’s most consistently stylish magazine brands, every

month.



So as well as looking good we are feeling rather good too. All our

titles remain dominant in their respective markets. In the women’s

lifestyle sector Cosmopolitan, She, Company and Zest all ride high,

delivering our advertisers deep into their consumers’ lives.



For the affluent market Esquire and Harpers & Queen consistently deliver

the very best of everything to their discerning readership, and for the

home interest sector Good Housekeeping, Country Living and House

Beautiful stay at the top of the best-seller lists despite new

entrants.



We are especially delighted that our most recent launches have reflected

our continuing commitment to innovation and quality. Both ZM, the first

intelligent guide to men’s physical, emotional and intellectual health,

and M, the first magazine to treat parents like adults, will be

increasing their frequency to twice monthly from March this year.



The National Magazine Company goes further than any other publisher in

enriching our consumers’ lives. Highly successful masthead television

programming, vibrant merchandising, and popular live events such as The

Cosmo Show and the Country Living Fairs which also come under the remit

of Tim Lucas, director of corporate business development, keep our

brands more than front-of-mind.



It is a great privilege to sponsor the Fashion, Beauty and Healthcare

category in the Campaign Press Advertising Awards and we are very

pleased to play a leading role in the development of one of the world’s

most exciting creative communities.

Official UK PlayStation Magazine



With a just-released ABC of 380,186 (July-December 1998), the

increasingly broad spectrum of UK gamers have voted with their pockets

to make the Official UK PlayStation Magazine the world’s best-selling

videogames magazine.



With a staggering 3.9 million PlayStations now in UK homes, 1999 will be

our biggest yet - recent issues selling in excess of 430,000 copies.



The reason behind this is that the Official UK PlayStation Magazine is

PlayStation. The best written and most clearly designed gaming magazine

on the shelves, our market-leading position means we can review games

honestly, giving real opinions rather than compromise our views in

pursuit of an exclusive cover. The magazine is written in an adult,

entertaining manner free from technical jargon but with expertise.



The PlayStation is now as much a fixture under the TV as a video

recorder and Official UK PlayStation Magazine reflects that.

Interviewees have included Michael Owen, Douglas Coupland, Brian Lara,

Massive Attack, Lennox Lewis and Ocean Colour Scene - all gamers

themselves.



Official UK PlayStation Magazine is licensed in 15 countries with a

total print run of more than two million copies from everywhere from

France and Finland to Spain and Sweden. Add on our brand extensions of

Essential PlayStation (ABC 173,412), Official PlayStation Tips (ABC

50,472) and quarterly specials (ABC 95,012), and we can guarantee

products reach more readers than any other PlayStation magazine.



With our exclusive official demo-disk, we let readers play the best

games for themselves. Blockbusters such as Tomb Raider 3 and Metal Gear

Solid have thrilled our millions of readers across Europe and 1999 will

see such games as Ridge Racer Type 4, Quake II and Gran Turismo 2 enjoy

the same coverage.



Add on our sponsorship of the PlayStation pods at all Premiership

grounds, the Match of The Day Live show, the NUS Student PlayStation

Network plus our branded PSM Tour Bus and you’ll understand why we are

the world’s best-selling videogames magazine.

OK! Magazine



Northern & Shell, Britain’s leading independent publisher, continues to

strive for, and achieve, success. 1998 was an incredible year for

OK!



Magazine and one which catapulted us into the top league of successful

women’s weekly titles.



Having made the transition to a weekly publication in March 1996, our

success was unprecedented and we quickly established ourselves as the

fastest-growing title in the women’s interest market - an accolade we

claim to this day. Our ABC for the July to December 1998 period came in

at 400,701 copies per week representing a huge 76.9 per cent increase in

circulation year on year.



This success stems from our desire to produce a winning product,

continual investment and hard work from the entire team. We have also

invested in our printing processes, our paper quality and, most

importantly, top exclusive celebrity stories.



We are committed to buying world exclusive stories about celebrities who

mean something in the lives of our readers and which are perfectly aimed

at the affluent, young, upmarket woman who is buying and enjoying this

fantastic magazine.



We have had blockbusting stories such as Anne Diamond speaking for the

first time since her marriage break up, Jerry Hall with her new baby,

Sheryl Gascoigne after Paul, Paula Yates, Grant and Della Bovey, Henry

Dent-Brocklehurst’s wedding, David Seaman’s wedding, Melanie Blatt’s

bump, Scary Spice’s wedding and Cher. 1999 will be no exception having

already delivered Scary Spice at home with her new husband and Tania

Bryer at home with her new baby.



As we celebrate our third year as the fastest-growing title in the

women’s market it gives us great pleasure to sponsor the Best Use of

Photography category when first-class photography is the hallmark of our

magazine.

Real Business Magazine



Business magazines have long been boring, stereotyped and

institutionalised.



And hardly ever read.



Until now.



Real Business has turned this marketplace upside down. It’s proved that

there is a real demand for intelligent and lively business coverage. And

get this: 70 per cent of our readers don’t read any other business

magazine.



Here, in no order whatsoever, are a few things we’ve achieved in the

past year:



Won the 1998 PPA Editor of the Year award for business/professional

magazines.



Generated more fully paid-up subscribers than Director, Enterprise and

Financial Director combined.



Boosted requested readership by 50 per cent per quarter.



Seen advertising revenues soar 38 per cent year on year; and ad pages

zoom up 37 per cent year on year.



Created ground-breaking editorial features - such as our Hot 100 ranking

of Britain’s fastest-growing companies; our 50 to Watch identity parade

of new entrepreneurs; and our Diary of a Flotation.



Received unsolicited comments like this: ’An excellent business

publication - increasingly the only one I bother to read.’



Held ten editors’ lunches where we gather a dozen entrepreneurs to

discuss the issues facing successful smaller companies.



Held upwards of 20 Real Business conferences and courses. Hosted several

’Legendary Dinners’.



Struck a joint-venture deal with the voice of British business, the CBI.

From February we started sending monthly editions of Real Business to

the CBI’s smaller company members.



Phew, that’s it.

Safeway Magazine



Safeway Magazine is going from strength to strength. It is now the

largest circulation women’s monthly magazine in the UK, with 1,997,063

copies being picked up instore every month (ABC July-December 1998). A

staggering one million of these are picked up in the first week

alone.



It is also the best-read women’s monthly title in the UK, with a

readership figure of 3,842,000 (NRS July-December 1998).



Safeway Magazine is for Safeway shoppers with an ABC card, with a core

target audience of young families with children. It is designed to make

their shopping experience easier.



The editorial is focused towards the readers’ needs. The content is a

mix of the inspirational and the practical, giving readers a broad range

of delicious recipe ideas for everything from midweek family suppers to

entertaining. Health and beauty and lifestyle features are included to

add a fun feel and a surprise element.



Independent research has shown that this balance of content is hugely

popular with the readers, with the tone described as ’telling not

selling, down to earth and friendly’.



It is also a highly responsive magazine. Recent research through BMRB

has shown that 72 per cent of cardholders surveyed have bought something

featured in the magazine, 65 per cent have used a recipe, and 47 per

cent have bought something from Safeway they would have bought

elsewhere. QRS also shows us that 90 per cent agree they can believe

what they read in it, and 93 per cent agree it is a useful source of

information on products.



This is why advertisements can generate up to 1,000 per cent sales

uplift.



Safeway Magazine is not only the essential magazine for the woman and

family of the 90s, but is also the essential magazine for any

advertising campaign.

Time Out Group



Time Out’s 30-year history is inextricably bound up with that of London;

a lifetime devoted to delivering, and often instigating, the very best

of metropolitan culture. Fringe theatre would not have taken off in the

70s without Time Out’s support. In the 80s, we were the only publication

to treat ’alternative’ comedy (now mainstream) seriously. In the 90s, we

are the capital clubber’s bible. We successfully campaigned for the

abolition of the TV duopoly, and now provide an unrivalled eight-day a

week, 30-page TV section. This is in addition to the most comprehensive,

all-inclusive, art, sport and entertainment listings in the capital.



Further to our first-class arts and entertainment coverage, we also run

regular covers and features on London life - from the explosion of

coffee bars in the city to the regeneration of Clerkenwell, to London’s

top 50 pubs and bars. Our aim is to let Londoners know what’s hip and

happening in their favourite city. Because we’re an independent

publisher, we always present the truth about London’s landmarks and

venues - good, bad and indifferent.



With an ABC circulation of 94,857 and 413,000 weekly readers, our

profile is young, affluent, aspirational and, above all, hooked on going

out.



Time Out’s impartial and independent editorial and comprehensive London

listings are available every week, all year round, for less than the

price of a decent pint.
