There are so many inventive and ambitious magazines being made around the world that it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with them all.
Steve Watson, Stack Magazines
The Stack Awards celebrated its third year in front of an international audience of independent magazine makers at The Queen of Hoxton in London on Monday 20 November 2017.
11 categories were judged by a panel of 22 experts that included Gail Bichler, design director of The New York Times Magazine; Will Hudson, founder of It’s Nice That; and Debbie Millman, president of the AIG.
Founder of Stack Magazines Steve Watson said:
The Stack Awards offers a snapshot of the excitement and innovation that has been filling newsstands for the last 12 months, and I hope our lists of winners and commended titles can help more people to discover and enjoy brilliant independent magazines.
