‘Magazine World’ adjudged Magazine of the Year at the TAF Awards

‘Magazine World’, the flagship title of Fédération Internationale de la Presse Périodique (FIPP), has been adjudged ‘Magazine of the Year’ at the Trade Association Forum’s (TAF) 2007 Best Practice Awards held in Mayfair on July 10.

The TAF Awards, now in its fifth year, is a showcase event that aims to recognise, encourage and reward best practice among UK trade associations and the achievements of Forum members.

‘Magazine World’ beat out publications produced by the Association of British Travel Agents, The Recruitment and Employment Confederation and the National Association of Funeral Directors in a unanimous vote by the judges. The win was particularly special after the title made the shortlist last year but went home empty-handed.

“We are honoured to be recognised for our efforts,” said Helen Bland, Vice-President of FIPP and Editor-in-Chief of ‘Magazine World’. “We put our heart and soul into this magazine and manage to produce a high quality title on a very small budget, with a very small team led by our Editor, Laurie Alpern. Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to produce a top-notch publication – one that we can now say is ‘award-winning’,” she added.

‘Magazine World’ is distributed to over 5,000 publishing executives, CEOs, directors and national magazine associations around the world.

FIPP or The International Federation of the Periodical Press works for the benefit of magazine publishers around the world; promoting the common editorial, cultural and economic interests of consumer and B2B publishers, both in print and electronic media.

FIPP serves a global market with total annual advertising revenue in the region of $70 billion and approximately 110,000 titles based on figures from FIPP World Magazine Trends 2006-07. FIPP currently represents 287 members in 59 countries, which consist of 47 national associations, 172 publishing companies and 66 associate members (including six individual members).
