NMA2017 – Applause, Celebration & Laughter

11th May 2017
An electric atmosphere at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane on Thursday 11th May 2017 as ACE, in it’s 66th year, hosted The Newspaper & Magazine Awards, the highest accolade of Newspaper & Magazine publishing industry.

New Categories

NMA2017 was unlike any previous Ace award ceremony. With a host of NEW categories the Newspaper & Magazine Awards 2017 were open to even more of the industry and it’s supporters, giving recognition to both print and digital sectors, applauding those innovative ideas which lead us to success.


An energised audience of 260 guests representing the breadth of newspaper and magazine publishing, distribution and retailing were enveloped in an atmosphere of excitement and mutual celebration as we recognised those brands, titles, teams and companies who had demonstrated the drive and persistence necessary to win.


Entertained by host Jarlath Regan, whose topical opening, unflinching honesty and lively delivery propelled the audience onto a sustained high without a lull in the laughs throughout. Guests celebrated late into the evening partying with our excellent band “The Talent” ensuring the after award celebrations were of the highest energy.
