Holland & Barrett editorial team score hat trick in BSME Talent Awards shortlist!

The River Group appearing a whopping three times in this year’s BSME Talent Awards.

British Society of Magazine Editors Talent Awards

All three shortlisted teams working on our magazines for the high-street retailer, Holland & Barrett:

Best Subbing/Production Team: Marie Farquharson & Cheryl Freedman – Healthy & Healthy For Men

Best Print Designer: Joanna Levitas – Healthy & Healthy For Men

Best Editorial Assistant: Francesca Specter – Healthy & Healthy For Men

The BSME Talent Awards reward the brilliance of all-too-often overlooked members of editorial and digital teams. Previously known as the Rising Stars Awards, they were relaunched in 2017 to reflect the fact that entrants don’t necessarily need to be either ‘young’ or ‘new to the industry’.

Nicola Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of The River Group commented: “River featuring in so many BSME Talent Awards shortlists, yet again, is testament to our expertise in and commitment to creating unique content for Holland & Barrett. It demonstrates the level of innovation and creativity that our talent uses to engage consumers – and continually drive great results for our clients!”

The winners will be announced at the award ceremony on the 6 June 2017.
