PPA Independent Publisher Awards 2023

On Friday 24 November, the UK independent publishing community gathered at 133 Houndsditch in London for a morning of unrivalled content and an afternoon of recognition and celebration.

In attendance for ESco were Susan, Louise, Alistair, Sam and Alice, who enjoyed the insightful, practical, and inspiring content delivered at the morning conference. Our team was later joined by Samantha Nasser (Senior Subscriptions Marketing Manager at Motor Sport Magazine), Christina Mullett (Marketing & Social Media Manager at Wanderlust Travel Media), Jon Bickley (CEO at Anthem Publishing), Richard Cosgrove (Director at Sundial Magazines Ltd), and Debbie Stenning (CEO at Database Vision Ltd). Thank you once again for spending the afternoon with us during the awards ceremony; it was a pleasure to have you all at our table.

From everyone here at ESco, we would like to congratulate all winners of the PPA Independent Publisher Awards 2023, with extra special mentions to:

  • Wanderlust Travel Media, winning Cover of the Year for the April/May 2023 issue.

Judges’ comments: “…there was one standout winner here, a brand that really knows its market with a very clear strategy, excellently executed.

  • Anthem Publishing, winning Podcast of the Year for The Women's Running Podcast.

Judges’ comments: “This was a superb example of how independent publishers can reach their target audience through innovative, purpose driven content that offers a huge amount of value to all sides.

  • Faversham House, winning Subscriptions Strategy of the Year (sponsored by ESco) for Utility Week.

Judges’ comments: “…Utility Week had a deep understanding of their target market, as well as a creative approach to reformatting their membership.

We would like to offer our congratulations to all winners and to those highly commended for their efforts in the industry this year. A huge thank you to everyone at the PPA for having us at our final PPA event of the year – we look forward to all the industry successes still to come that we will celebrate with you in the New Year.
