At a time when publishers need to demonstrate their understanding of the changing relationship between consumers, content and advertisers, it has never been more important for online publishers to showcase how they are improving the reader experience, investing in new ways to promote even greater content, and creating new and more effective opportunities for advertisers.  The AOP Digital Publishing Awards benchmark and champion excellence in online publishing, reflecting the innovation and enterprise that characterises our industry.

We are convening a Jury of publishing talent, media expertise and client experience to ensure that your work and your team’s skills are judged by your peers and by those budget holders who will invest in advertising through your media brands.

Three great reasons for publishers to enter:

  • Achieve deserved recognition for your people: motivate them to continue to deliver their best as members of a winning team
  • Showcase the creative, innovative and effective solutions that you have delivered – both for your readers and for your clients
  • Demonstrate that your team have the talents and skills to build your audience and add value for advertising and commercial partners

Please secure colleague or client approval and gather your supporting materials before uploading your entry to the official site. We recommend that you draft your entry on the downloadable entry template form for ease of circulation.
