The search is on for Britain's best church magazine. Entries are now invited for the annual competition run by the Association for Church Editors (ACE).
"Church magazines are often a forgotten but effective means of communication," says Sally Churchus, Chair of the national organisation, "so we are keen to encourage editors everywhere."
For the coming 2020 competition, which closes on 3rd February, awards will be made for any church magazine, large or small but not printed in colour. The Gold Award winner will receive the John King Trophy, to be held for one year, while Silver and Bronze Awards will receive an inscribed trophy to keep, together with a Certificate of Excellence for display.
A panel of judges assesses each magazine, giving points for various aspects including cover design, headlines and clarity of the Christian message. The prize-giving is open to everyone, to be held at Westminster Central Hall on 30th May. The event includes a lecture and workshop on effective magazines.
