British Media Awards

The British Media Awards highlight the best in business across the entire media industry. From the lifetime achievement award to the rising star award; from the launch of the year award to the media brand of the year award, our expert panel of judges recognise excellence and innovation across the whole industry.  The awards have quickly become the standard that those leading this sector measure themselves and their peers by.  With a panel of judges that have unparalleled experience in the industry, the awards seek out and reward those that excel in each of the carefully chosen categories.

The British Media Awards highlight innovation and excellence wherever it comes from – be in in print newspaper, a digital business website or a mobile version of a consumer magazine. We believe we can all learn from each other no matter what sector we’re in.

The awards are open to: newspapers, magazines, event companies, broadcasters, media technology companies, B2B publishers, online-only publishers and mobile-based publishers.

Our aim is simple – to celebrate inspiring and creative ideas that are changing the way the media industry works.
