Double whammy for River Group in the prestigious 2017 BSME shortlists

The British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME) has announced the shortlist for its 2017 awards with two prized nominations for the River Group.

The BSME is the only society in the UK exclusively for editors and senior editorial staff working across print and digital titles, with its awards judged by respected industry experts of the highest calibre.

This year sees River Group’s Ellie Hughes (Editor for Healthy) and Tom Rowley (Editor for Healthy for Men) both shortlisted as Editor of the Year in the Health and Fitness category.

Joely Carey, River’s Director of Content, says: “Both Ellie and Tom are editors who truly live their brands and every issue sees them go above and beyond the norm to ensure their magazines have true value and stand-out for the readers.

“Their skill, drive and professional passion is apparent on every page and I am delighted this has been recognised by the BSME judging panels.

“The BSME awards are considered the absolute pinnacle of publishing’s awards season and to have two editors shortlisted is a testament to River’s talented editorial teams and an unwavering commitment to quality.”

The awards are being presented on the 21st November.
