for Church Editors seeks entries, by Friday 22
March, for its Award Scheme for Church Magazines. This year, the
scheme is restricted to magazines that are black-and-white print
only, of A5 portrait layout in the publication's final format, that
have four or more editions each year, with regular print runs not
exceeding 1200 copies. There will be two categories, with print
runs of 50-250 copies and of 250-1200 copies.
The scheme is indifferent
to the colour of the paper on which the publication is printed, and
will accept magazines that, of the four or more editions a year,
have one or two editions carrying a colour-printed cover (outside
front and back page) only. In such cases, however, the review will
be based on a monochrome photocopy of the cover page. To enter,
three copies of two recent editions (i.e. with a cover dated after
June 2012) should be sent to Keith Milmer, Chairman, The
Association for Church Editors, 18 Churchway, Haddenham, Aylesbury,
Bucks HP17 8AA, to reach him by 22 March 2013.
