ACE Newspaper & Magazine Awards 2020 – Announcement

1st June 2020
After some careful consideration, and an earlier decision to postpone the original Newspaper & Magazine Awards 2020 event from April 2020 to September 2020, we have now made the difficult decision to move the physical awards ceremony back until March 2021 owing to the on-going situation with Covid-19. The health and safety of our colleagues and members is our first priority, and although it’s sad that we won’t be able to get together this year, we feel like it’s the right decision and we will be back in 2021 with a chance to celebrate some of the good news stories, and challenges that have been overcome in 2020!

However, we didn’t want to leave the 2020 Newspaper and Magazine Awards nominees without recognition for the huge effort spent on awards entries this year. We have received an unprecedented number of high quality entries across all 18 categories, spanning the entire newspaper and magazine industry and celebrating the very best in innovation and achievements, and that shouldn’t go without recognition. (see shortlist below)

So, we have decided that ACE will be celebrating the nominees and winners of each of the Awards via a FREE and virtually hosted event. We are currently working through the details, and hope to be able to share some more information with you soon.

For those that have already booked tables for the event, your order will automatically transfer to the Newspaper & Magazine Awards in March 2021. We are pleased to be able to maintain this year’s table prices and will automatically reserve and port your table reservations to the live NMA2021, which will take place on the 11th March 2021 at the Royal Garden Hotel – Kensington. We will be seeking new entries for the Awards from January 2021 – and hope to be able to offer some new categories in recognition of teams, individuals and businesses who have succeeded throughout the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you have any questions regarding these arrangements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Yours sincerely

ACE – General Committee.

ShortList 2020

This year’s award entrants truly reflected “Excellence in Our Industry” we were overwhelmed with inspiring entries and, with an entry pool 40% on last year, our judges have had an even harder time deciding on the shortlist. ACE would like to thank all those industry colleagues who took the time to submit a nomination; we really value the contribution you have made to the Newspaper and Magazine Awards.

We received a wealth of high quality entries across all categories reflecting the immense volume of initiative, planning and execution excellence that makes our industry the best in the world. Our judges had the difficult task of selecting the most impressive from each category to put forward into our shortlist.
