AS Watson editorial team shortlisted for British Media Awards

It’s celebration time (again) at River as the British Media Awards shortlist is announced with The River Group appearing twice from the AS Watson team, for Superdrug and The Perfume Shop.

We are thrilled to announce the following nominees:

Both have been nominated for the Rising Star award, a brilliant representation of how River is striving to nurture young talent in the industry.

The BMAs recognise the media owners and companies that are innovating and adapting at a time of unprecedented change in media, rewarding excellence in every area – from commercial to editorial, from digital to print, from advertising to subscriptions.

Nicola Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of The River Group commented: ‘Having two nominations for the prestigious Rising Star award is a testament to our commitment to creating fresh and bold content for our clients, while developing young talent and future stars of journalism.’

‘To say I’m excited to be nominated for the Rising Star award at the BMAs is an understatement! What an honour. The British Media Awards is such a prestigious and monumental occasion. And to be nominated alongside my work bestie, Mollie, just makes it that bit more special.’

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 16 May 2018.
