Fourth Year of Awards Sponsored by App Studio Continues to Set the Standard for Recognizing Digital Publishing Innovation

DENVER, CO and LONDON – July 12, 2013 – The Digital Magazine Awards is gearing up once again to recognize the world’s most innovative publishing, editorial, and advertising teams. The call for entries has officially opened and magazine publishers, individuals, and advertisers from the digital publishing industry are invited to submit nominations across a wide range of award categories.

From Digital Magazine of the Year and Magazine Ad of the Year to specific awards for Fashion, Entertainment, Lifestyle Magazine of the Year and more, the Digital Magazine Awards highlight those in the industry who are most successfully creating content for Web, smartphone and tablet devices.

Bruce Hudson, chairman of the Digital Magazine Awards, said, “The Digital Magazine Awards is as much about showcasing digital innovation as it is about celebrating the evolution of magazine publishing. The Awards have chronicled how – year on year – our industry has risen to the digital challenge. I cannot wait to see this year’s nominees, from the world’s most recognized brands to smaller, niche publications.”

The Digital Magazine Awards 2012 will be judged by a panel of industry experts including:

  • Peter Bale, Vice President of Digital, CNN International
  • Madhav Chinnappa, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Google News & Magazines
  • Achin Bhowmik, Director, Intel Corporation

Shaun Barriball, vice president of mobile products for Quark and App Studio, said, “The Digital Magazine Awards have grown into the de facto awards program of its kind – hundreds of submissions were entered last year from marquee brands and individual innovators. There have been huge leaps forward in the digital publishing industry over the last year, such as the move to HTML5-based apps. Consumer preferences have also matured and, whereas static Web pages and PDF replicas on a single platform have worked in the past, readers now expect highly engaging, innovative apps accessed across a variety of devices. We look forward to seeing how publishers are responding to this opportunity.”
