• Result! Not wanting to blow our own trumpet or anything but WE JUST WONAN INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR THIS MAGAZINE! At a swanky awards dinner held in Los Angeles earlier this month Element won an INMA (International Newsmedia Marketing Association) award for Product/brand/audience Development. One of the many talented writers featured regularly in these pages was so pleased for us she ran out into her garden and in a flurry of floral arrangement created on her lawn the message you see above. A poppy gram, if you will. No sooner had we heard this lovely news, when Gavin Healy, co-founder and senior brand manager of Element, was voted onto the board of the Sustainable Business Network. It’s fitting recognition of many years at the forefront of using media to drive change and tell the incredible stories in this space. Truth be told, he would have made the sustainable hotties list featured in our lead story if I didn’t have to sit beside him all day. Throw in a ‘highly commended’ at the 2012 PANPA awards and, all in all, we’re feeling pretty chuffed with ourselves. In fact even more chuffed than we were before all this on account of the hundreds of encouraging emails and messages from you, the readers. We won’t get complacent. Promise.
