The fact that we’ve received so many entries for 2011 - with entries up 25% on last year - confirms that the digital publishing industry is back on its feet. Our judges had a formidable task in selecting our nominees, and I believe that the calibre of this year’s shortlist is remarkably strong and reflects the breadth of endeavour. The AOP Digital Publishing Awards are designed to recognise, showcase and reward those businesses that have made a difference to our industry – and we look forward to welcoming them all to the Roundhouse, Camden in June”.
