Your award-win­ning AG

Australian Geographic - - From The Editor-in-chief -

WE LOVE GIV­ING OUT awards here at Aus­tralian Geo­graphic. It’s the high­light of our year when, at the an­nual AG awards gala, we get to hon­our the ad­ven­tur­ers and con­ser­va­tion­ists who mo­ti­vate and delight us. This al­ways in­spir­ing event was made even more spe­cial last Oc­to­ber in Syd­ney by the at­ten­dance of the Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (see Your So­ci­ety, page 30).

We were es­pe­cially thrilled and hon­oured when we found our­selves on the re­ceiv­ing end of an award at the pres­ti­gious Aus­tralian Mag­a­zine Awards in Novem­ber. It’s the third time in suc­ces­sion that Aus­tralian Geo­graphic has been named Spe­cial­ist Mag­a­zine Brand of the Year. The hon­our doesn’t just ac­knowl­edge the excellence of the Aus­tralian Geo­graphic jour­nal, but of a whole raft of other re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties we’re also en­gaged in.

That in­cludes our an­nual awards gala din­ner, web­site and so­cial me­dia, books and ed­u­ca­tional pub­li­ca­tions and nu­mer­ous other ef­forts in­clud­ing our speak­ers’ bureau, AG Presents, which we launched last year. In 2019, through this ex­cit­ing new ini­tia­tive, we are tak­ing the AG Awards out of Syd­ney and on the road, hold­ing speak­ing events right around the coun­try. With the in­valu­able sup­port of part­ners such as Co­ral Ex­pe­di­tions, we’ll visit re­gional towns and cities in the com­pany of many of our ad­ven­ture and con­ser­va­tion he­roes from past awards, who will give il­lus­trated pre­sen­ta­tions and en­gage in in­ter­ac­tive Q&A ses­sions. Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on venues and pre­sen­ters will be avail­able in the next is­sue, in March, and through our web­site and weekly email news­let­ter. To make sure you don’t miss out, sign up for the news­let­ter via our web­site, aus­tralian­geo­graphic.com.au

We look for­ward to meet­ing you, our read­ers, right around the na­tion and pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity for our won­der­ful awardees to share their in­spir­ing sto­ries in full and in per­son.

See you there!
