“We’re thrilled and we look forward to the awards night,” said Nick Chan, ceo of Pacific Magazines.

Established in 1998, the Magazine of the Year Awards are designed to recognise and award excellence and achievement in Australian magazine publishing and editorial.

“The quality of entries received this year was as high as ever and in some cases higher,” said Helen Kingsmill, executive director of Magazine Publishers Australia. “Generally speaking the submissions are all of a high standard and there was a strong showing in terms of numbers and entries from the weekly magazine segment; weekly magazines have been energetic and well performing for the past few years now.”

Sixty-one finalists were chosen from 268 entries. From these, Pacific Magazines has 19 finalists overall, followed by ACP (18), EMAP Australia (12), News Magazines (5), Time Inc.
