With award season just around the corner, DC Publishing is celebrating two of their titles being shortlisted for Special Interest Magazine of the Year at the upcoming PPA Scottish Magazine Awards 2019.
Founded in 2007 by Denise Connelly, DC Publishing believe magazines have the power to connect, inspire and inform. Based in Glasgow’s city centre, the team at DC Publishing work on a plethora of titles, and are excited to see two titles being put forward by the PPA.
Enable Magazine is the UK’s leading disability and lifestyle title, which covers a wide range of content pertinent to people living with disabilities and carers. The nod for Special Interest Magazine of the Year celebrates the tireless, dedication the team puts in.
From sourcing interviews with Strictly Come Dancing’s Will Bayley, the Flying Scotsman, Sir Jackie Stewart, Steph Booth, and many more recognisable names in the disabled community: the content within the magazine is continually engaging, and pertinent to the disabled community.
Researching topics of great interest over the years, the team behind Enable Magazine has a standing foundation with readers, advertisers, PR companies, charities and the organisations with disability and accessibility at the forefront of their minds.
Similarly, Source has been nominated in the same category. As Scotland’s number one student title, the magazine investigates the issues that are important to Scotland’s young people, whilst building a rapport and relationship with advertisers and organisations working to improve opportunities for future generations.
From a look at the mental health crisis to career advice, or support when transitioning into higher education, Source is the know-it-all friend that young people need. Not to mention, interviews with celebrities have included Olly Murs, Mabel and Lewis Capaldi – Source pride themselves on being one of the first titles to start working with the Scottish hero prior to rocketing to fame.
Of the nominations, Denise enthused: “I am delighted that both Enable Magazine and Source have been nominated for Special Interest Magazine of the Year.
“Every member of the team works so hard to ensure the titles uphold the high standard of content, design, and professional connections with advertisers’people have grown to expect from both Enable and Source.
“Over the years we have seen both titles flourish, and the team continues to show the same level of passion and commitment to publishing magazines that break the mould. Sourcing original content, speaking with readers directly to writing engaging content: the nominations are a great honour. It is gratification for all of the hard work over the last year.”
Winner of the Special Interest Magazine of the Year Award will be announced on Thursday 28 November during the awards ceremony at The Hub in Edinburgh.
