The sec­ond an­nual Stack Awards, cel­e­brat­ing in­de­pen­dent mag­a­zine pub­lish­ing, saw Bri­tain and the Nether­lands carry off seven of the 11 tro­phies on of­fer, with Dutch de­sign and crafts mag MacGuf­fin tak­ing the Mag­a­zine of the Year ti­tle.

This year’s awards at­tracted more than dou­ble the num­ber of en­tries sub­mit­ted for last year’s com­pe­ti­tion, and 150 mag­a­zine mak­ers met in London to cel­e­brate. The judges pre­sent­ing the awards com­mented on both the quan­tity and qual­ity of the mag­a­zines they saw.

“The stan­dard of en­tries this year was ex­tremely high across all cat­e­gories,” said Steven Wat­son, founder of Stack, a sub­scrip­tion ser­vice for in­de­pen­dent pub­li­ca­tions. “It’s been an­other ex­cep­tion­ally good year for in­de­pen­dent pub­lish­ers, and I’m de­lighted that the ex­panded awards have been able to recog­nise the fan­tas­tic work be­ing done by these pas­sion­ate mak­ers.”

The winners and com­men­da­tions were de­cided by an in­ter­na­tional panel of mag­a­zine ex­perts that in­cluded Gail Bich­ler, de­sign di­rec­tor of the New York Times Mag­a­zine; Deb­bie Mill­man, cre­ative di­rec­tor of Print mag­a­zine; and Jeremy Leslie, cre­ative di­rec­tor of magCul­ture.
