Newspaper and Magazine Awards UPDATE

12th March 2020
Owing to the current situation with Corona virus (Corvid 19) the ACE General Committee have decided that in the best interests of our members and guests the forthcoming Newspaper and Magazine Awards that was to be held at the Royal Garden Hotel Kensington on Thursday 2nd April 2020 will be moved to a new date later in the year.

***NEW date for NMA2020***

The Newspaper and Magazine Awards will now be held on Thursday 10th September 2020

The venue will remain the Royal Garden Hotel Kensington

Your questions answered

WHY MOVE THE DATE?

The ACE Governing Committee has been monitoring the Corvid 19 situation through Government web pages over the last three weeks.  We believe that the situation is moving at such a pace now that either individual member company policies or Government restrictions will make it impractical to host the event on 2nd April 2020

WHY MOVE TO SEPTEMBER?

Owing to the level of uncertainty around impact the virus may have on business and social lives the ACE Governing Committee believes it sensible and prudent to allow a longer time period to elapse between the previous scheduled date and the new date

WHAT ABOUT MY BOOKING?

Your booking is safe and will be carried over to the new date.

WILL YOU ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS BEFORE SEPTEMBER 10th?

We have postponed the final judging round and will hold this at a time nearer the new date therefore winners will not be decided or revealed until the awards evening on 10th September 2020

BUT WE HAVE ALREADY PAID OUR INVOICE, IS OUR MONEY SAFE?

ACE is a Not for Profit organisation operated by a committee comprising industry colleagues and overseen by a board of trustees comprising senior industry figures. Any paid funds we hold for this event are protected and will be kept separate from our day to day operational funding. Should any situation arise that ACE is unable to hold the event in 2020 as planned we will either transfer monies to alternative events or refund at your choice.
