Heron wins cover-ted award

Heron Publications AwardChamber member Heron Publications has scooped a prized industry accolade.

The independent publisher picked up the runner-up award in the Best Front Cover category at the 2013 Magazine Publishers’ Awards.

The keenly contested nationwide awards culminated in a glitzy Oscars-style presentation evening at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre, Coventry, where representatives of Heron Publications received a trophy and certificate to mark their achievement.

Director Mike Firth said: “Hundreds of local magazines were represented at the presentation and we were delighted to see our publications had made it to the shortlist. To go one step further and receive a commendation was a thrill.

“We know local people enjoy receiving their copies of our magazines every month because we receive many kind comments from readers and advertisers, but to be recognised nationally is very special indeed."

Heron Publications produces five magazines in north Derbyshire and Sheffield.

The firm was founded 11 years ago and now employs 13 people based at its office in Beauchief, Sheffield.
