Horse&Rider wins ‘Consumer Magazine of the Year’ award at the 2010 Independent Publisher Awards
Horse&Rider Magazine has been voted ‘Consumer Magazine of the Year’ at the 2010 Independent Publisher Awards, at a glitzy ceremony at London’s Vinopolis on Tuesday 7 December, 2010.
Fighting off stiff competition from other shortlisted consumer titles, including Food & Travel and Spear’s, Horse&Rider proved victorious in the most anticipated category of the awards. Although Horse&Rider was shortlisted for the same award in 2009, this is the first year in which the UK’s best-selling equestrian monthly has won the title.
Several members of the Horse&Rider team stepped up to receive the award, including Editor Nicky Moffatt, Assistant Editor Lucy Turner, Advertising Director Andrea Moffatt, Advertising Manager Abi Cannon, Advertising Executive Rachael Hames, Marketing Manager Zoe Cannon, Online Publishing Executive Mel Rutherford, Marketing Co-ordinator Ali Hill and Production Controller Ben Harris.
Said Nicky Moffatt, H&R’s Editor: “The whole team at Horse&Rider is thrilled to have fought off strong competition to win the 2010 Consumer Magazine of the Year award. This is a fantastic representation of all the hard work carried out by our brilliant team.”
Horse&Rider Magazine is published by D J Murphy (Publishers) Ltd, part of the Signature Publishing group.
DJ Murphy’s parent publishing company, Signature Publishing Ltd, cleaned up at the awards. Signature was named Independent Publishing Company of the Year, its marketing team was named Team of the Year, and Managing Director Danny Morris received the Individual Achievement Award. Also shortlisted were Horse&Rider’s sister title, PONY Magazine, for the Media Brand of the Year award, and Signature’s finance team, for the Team of the Year award.
