PPA Awards 2022 – shortlist revealed

Now in its 42nd year, the PPA Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements and progress made by the UK publishing and media industry across the business and consumer magazine sector.

Awards will be presented in 27 categories to specialist media organisations, suppliers and individuals who have demonstrated the very best work over the last 12 months, says the PPA.

Sajeeda Merali, PPA CEO, commented: “Our industry is going through a period of accelerated change, with our members’ businesses diversifying in new and exciting ways. The entries reflected the energy and passion of these organisations, and highlighted the excellent work delivered by their teams, as well as individual editors, writers and designers. It’s a genuine thrill to read through all the entries and be reminded about the vibrant sector we work in.”

The PPA Awards 2022 winners will be revealed at a gala ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on the 22 June.

The PPA ‘Cover of the Year 2022’ is now open to a public vote. Votes can be cast daily until 20 May 2022.
