Agency of the Year
New for 2013 and voted for by the UK advertising sales community. This award is presented to the advertising, media or digital agency considered by those working day-to-day in the business to be the most "switched-on" to the magazine industry.

Integrated Campaign of the Year
Awards impressive synergy and effectiveness through any combination of magazine brand platforms and executions, be they print, website, mobile, app, social, event or experiential.

Collaboration of the Year
New for 2013, this category recognises the campaigns or projects that demonstrate a true partnership between client and magazine publisher that  transcends the normal agency/media owner relationship.

Innovative Campaign of the Year
In this category, judges will be looking for fresh insights, inspired strategies and ground-breaking executions that fuelled or formed part of your innovative campaign. The winner could be new thinking for a traditional objective, a campaign that pushed the sector norms or a spark of genius that set the campaign alight.

Print Campaign of the Year
For print rather than pixels. Whether print-only or part of a multi-platform campaign, judges will be looking for superb planning, execution and results from the printed channel(s) and executions of your campaign.

Most Effective Campaign of The Year
How do you measure up? In this category, judges would like to hear which metrics your campaign used, across which magazine channels and, most importantly, how you set about meeting, or surpassing, your objectives.
