PPA Scottish Magazine Awards 2017 – Winners Announced

Laura Dunlop: "The PPA Scottish Magazine Awards are a window onto a vibrant and dynamic industry."

The title also won Business and Professional Magazine of the Year, while editor Mandy Rhodes was named Business and Professional Editor of the Year.

More than 250 guests joined in the celebrations at the gala dinner and award ceremony hosted by broadcaster Judith Ralston on Thursday 23 November at the EICC, Edinburgh.

The PPA Scottish Magazine Awards 2017 also saw the very first entrant to the brand-new PPA Scotland Hall of Fame. The first inductee was named as Broughty Ferry native Mike Soutar, the current Chairman of ShortList, Stylist, Emerald Street, and Mr Hyde, and an interviewer on the BBC’s The Apprentice.

For the first time, the award for Cover of the Year was entirely by public vote. More than 10,000 votes came in for the shortlist of 18 covers, says PPA Scotland. The winner was revealed as The Big Issue’s satirical take on John Carpenter’s They Live, featuring Donald Trump as a monstrous alien.

Content marketing company White Light also did well on the night, receiving four awards, including taking home both the Consumer and Business and Professional Magazine Designer Awards.

PPA Scotland Business Manager Laura Dunlop said: “The PPA Scottish Magazine Awards are a window onto a vibrant and dynamic industry. The talent on show from all the winners and shortlisted entries is incredible – and we are delighted to be able to celebrate with so many talented people.

“We were particularly pleased to see so many readers vote for their favourite magazine cover. It shows the important place that magazines continue to play in people’s lives.”
