River’s Rising Stars attend the British Media Awards

The British Media Awards took place last night, with two of the River team being shortlisted for the prestigious Rising Star award. Both Mollie, Junior Beauty Writer for Superdrug, and Lauren, Editor of The Perfume Shop blog, Scents, were nominated, and while neither were awarded the final prize, both River and the nominees are extremely proud of their hard work and industry recognition.

Speaking about the awards, Lauren said ‘it was such an honour to be shortlisted for the hugely prestigious British Media Awards – it’s one of my biggest achievements to date. The evening was a wonderful celebration of talent in the industry and it was great to be recognised as a Rising Star. Onwards and upwards!’

“Even to be considered for the Rising Star Award at the British Media Awards was an absolute honour”, said Mollie, “it was an amazing evening with great food and even greater company and it will be an occasion I will remember for the rest of my life”

Joely Carey, Director of Content at The River Group, said:

“The British Media Awards is a fiercely competitive arena and the River Group was once again in amongst the very best of the UK’s publishing talent. To have not one, but two, team members shortlisted in the Rising Star category is a testament to the quality of the work being produced by the talented River team on a daily basis.

‘Both Mollie and Lauren are powerhouses of ambition and although neither of them were winners on the night, to be shortlisted in the company of journalists from world-renowned publishers is an accolade in itself. We are very proud that River continues to be recognised at the table when it comes to showcasing the very best talent in the UK.”
