There will be two trophies awarded in this category:
- National Supplement/Magazine of the Year (Weekly frequency)
- National Supplement/Magazine of the Year (including Fortnightly/Monthly/Quarterly frequency)
- The judging criteria for both Awards is the same – see below
Every entry will be judged on the following elements: Print Production, Design, Content and Commercial Innovation.
Judges will be scoring each of these headings separately on judging day – with the entry gaining the most marks across the board winning the category.
Every entry must be accompanied by a maximum 500-word printed summary – clearly laid out summaries that address the criteria headings separately will be looked upon favourably by the judging panel.
The entry must include three different issues of the supplement or magazine published between 1 January 2018 and 1 February 2019.
A supplement/magazine must be a separate section of the publication or a separate publication, pre-printed, which is inserted in, distributed with, or available standalone, to the main newspaper.
