APA Love FuturePlus Creative too!

It’s a record haul of International Customer Publishing Awards nominations this year folks! Which is nice. Here’s the press release…

Future Plus has been shortlisted for five awards at the 2009 International Customer Publishing Awards. Congratulations go to the team for making the final cut in categories such as Editor of the Year and Best Integrated Marketing Solution.

Run by the Association of Publishing Agencies (APA), Future’s titles have been picked out to compete against publications from the likes of Redwood, Haymarket and John Brown. Second-round judging begins this week where 50 senior media figures will choose winners in the 25 categories.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony on 25th November at Old Billingsgate in London.

FuturePlus UK Director Jayne Caple says: “This is the first year that these awards have been opened up to international agencies and as a result the number of entries rose by over 50%. Of course, that makes this news all the sweeter and we are all delighted.

“It’s great to see the teams’ work celebrated in such a way and I’m particularly pleased for Simon Kirrane who seems to be hogging the limelight somewhat with his three shortlisted nominations – a testimony to his talent and skills.”

Here’s the full list of categories in which we’ve been shortlisted:

Best Integrated Marketing Solution – Roland
Editor of the year – Simon Kirrane for Roland
Best membership title – GMB

It’s The Perpetual Pin Badge Fridge Magnet Calendar





This is another one of those amazingly/annoyingly simple ideas that just work. Pin badge sized fridge magnets that act as a calendar. This won a graphic design award at the Kiev International Advertising Festival and should, hope fully be hitting the shops soonish.
