AOP Digital Publishing Awards 2021 open for entries

Published: 11 Feb 2021

London, UK, 11th February 2021: The Association of Online Publishers (AOP) has today announced that its prestigious annual awards are open for entries. In collaboration with PubMatic, the Digital Publishing Awards will showcase industry-wide innovation, highlighting the individuals, teams, and initiatives that are driving success for the sector. 

Now in their 19th year, the awards continue to recognise exceptional achievement by publishers, advertisers, agencies and suppliers, while raising the benchmark for best practice, creativity, and entrepreneurship across the digital media space. The deadline for entries closes on the 6 May 2021. 

The 2021 ceremony will see outstanding digital publishing efforts celebrated across 26 categories, including the newly added ‘Best Publisher-led Social Good Initiative’. 

The new category is in acknowledgement of the strong potential for digital publishing players to lead on addressing social, political and environmental issues. It champions initiatives that have engaged audiences and inspired positive change — encompassing efforts across B2B, specialist and broader consumer markets, as well as specific partnerships with not-for-profit organisations. 

This year’s award also sees the ‘Best Podcast Strategy’ category expanded under the new title of ‘Best Audio Strategy’ to reflect the increasing diversity of online media listening. 

Open to all members and non-members of the AOP, each category will be judged by a selection of pan-industry specialists, under the guidance of co-chairs, Robin Shute, Operations Director of Incisive Media, and Hayley Cochrane, Head of Digital for Mail Metro Media.
