The 20 categories this year include three new awards: Use of Social Media 2012 – reflecting the ever-growing importance of social media channels for publishers; Pureplay Digital Publisher 2012 – recognising for the first time the success of digital-only media owners and Technology Partner 2012 acknowledging the importance of supplier companies and startups to media owners’ future success.
“Every award win is special, but being crowned AOP Editorial Team of the Year will always be one of our best memories - a great recognition for the C+D team and a great night out. We’ll be back to win it again!”Chemist+Druggist Editor Gary Paragpuri - 2011 winner
AOP Director Lee Baker says: “We enjoyed our biggest ever awards last year, taking over the Camden Roundhouse for a celebration of the best and the brightest in the industry with over 1000 guests– but we haven’t rested on our laurels." "The new categories we have added this year reflect important changes to our members’ businesses, and the continuing development of the industry as a whole. All of this should add up to another evening of fun and intense competition at the Roundhouse.” This year’s event will be the 11th AOP Awards. As last year there will be an overall “AOP Grand Prix 2012” prize which can be awarded by the judges additionally to a winning entry. Entries are invited from publishing companies based in the UK, while the Ad Ops Team, Research and Insights and Tech Partner categories are all open to non-publishers.
