The Independent Magazine has won five Awards of Excellence in the Society of News Design’s prestigious annual Best of News Design Competition. The Magazine won against competition from all over the world in the following categories: Cover Design (two awards); Cover Story Design (two awards); Magazine Designer Portfolio (one award). The issues marking the centenary of the First World War and covering Travel were especially successful.
Editor of the Independent Amol Rajan added: “This is a superb and richly deserved tribute to our Magazine Art Director Kevin Bayliss, and the entire Magazine team, including Will Dean as Editor, Sam Muston as Deputy Editor, Production Editor Madeleine North, Picture Editor Annalee Mather, and writer Oscar Quine. Once again we have shown we can take on the best in the world and win.”
The competition invites entries from all magazines and general circulation newspapers — daily or non-daily, broadsheet or tabloid, traditional or alternative — published anywhere in the world.
Separately, the Society of Publication Design has also given The Independent Magazine a merit award for The School Issue.Reuse content
