The Professional Publishers Association (PPA) has announced the shortlist for its 2017 awards, which celebrate editorial and design excellence, and honour outstanding industry talent. The River Group has yet again been shortlisted for four awards, across three categories.
The River Group has two clients in the Customer Magazine of the Year category:
Journey, the luxury customer magazine for Princess Cruises and Walk magazine, the flagship publication of the Ramblers, Britain’s walking charity.
Jo Levitas, art director at The River Group, has been nominated for Designer of the Year (Consumer) for her work on Healthy for Holland & Barrett.
To round up the flurry of award nominations, group account director Kate Rapacchi has been nominated for Team Leader of the Year (Business and Consumer). Kate runs the multi-channel content business for Co-op Food.
Nicola Murphy, CEO of The River Group, says:
‘In an age when many naysayers decry the effectiveness of print, these nominations prove that it still has a significant role to play as part of a brand’s content portfolio. We have always prided ourselves on our ability to deliver against hard marketing KPIs. I am extremely proud of the teams and individuals nominated and the excellent work we consistently deliver for clients. The content landscape may be changing but editorial and design craft are just as important now as they were when we started 23 years ago.’
