The content marketing agency has received four nominations for the prestigious 2020 BSME Awards, celebrating the very best talent within the publishing industry.

Editorial director Ellie Hughes, who has been nominated for Editor of the Year, in the Branded Content category for curating stand-out content for Holland & Barrett’s Healthy magazine.

Co-op Food Editor Nicky Rampley-Clarke, who’s in the running for Editor of the Year, in the Food and Drink category for delivering a consistently high quality publication.

Louise Zecevic is up for Editor of the Year, in the highly-recognized Specialist category for her outstanding work on Balance, the membership magazine for Diabetes UK.

And lastly, Creative Director Matt Ford, who’s been shortlisted for Cover of the Year, in the B2B category for redesigning the CA Magazine for ICAS.

The nominees will be competing against some of the leading brands and talent within the publishing industry. The results will be revealed at the official awards ceremony in February 2021. 

River’s CEO, Nicola Murphy, said: ‘I am absolutely thrilled that River has once again gained industry recognition. To receive not one, but four prestigious nominations at this year’s BSME is both exceptional and testament to the quality of work our teams produce. Ellie, Nicky, Louise and Matt’s nominations are very well deserved! Go Team River! Bring on the awards ceremony!’

Whilst we anticipate the final results in the new year, for now, we celebrate our superstars the best way we know how – drinks!
