Arena magazine scoops it again!

Monday, July 28, 201444, by Century One

We did it again! Usdaw’s Arena magazine has won Best Magazine at the TUC Communication Awards 2014 for the third time since we took over the design and art editing of this industry leading trade union magazine.

Last week’s ceremony at Congress House, London, saw Arena editor Peter Rees-Farrell accept the honours at the podium, along with a highly commended award for Best Feature on the bedroom tax.

Judges said that the magazine was “outstanding in every respect” and that the vibrant design was a “real page-turner”.

Sarah Simpson, Century One’s Managing Director said: “We are delighted to have been involved in helping our client win this award again. Usdaw continue to create highly topical and current content for their members, making Arena a truly member-centric magazine. It is a pleasure for our designers to work with such high quality content and turn this into the compact and visually appealing design you see off the press – again a design that is both accessible and relevant to its audience.”

Mike Glover, Head of Media and Communications, also received an award for Best One-Off Publication for their guide to maternity and parental rights.

Voice, the Communication Workers Union magazine, was commended in the Best Magazine category as strongly branded with a “superb masthead” and the CWU team took home an award for Best E-Comms for their CWUTV Conference video.

Prospect were another big winner with gongs for Best Photo, Best One-Off Publication for their Prospect Pioneers calendar, and Best Campaign.

Century One Publishing would like to extend their congratulations to all the winners and entrants who help to make the trade union sector such an exciting and vibrant publishing environment.
