Gay rights charity Stonewall has nominated the AJ in the Publication of the Year category for its annual awards, which recognise those who have made a positive impact on the lives of lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Britain.
The nomination is for our first-ever survey of gay architects, which Stonewall described as ‘a wake-up call for the industry’. The AJ has been shortlisted alongside national media including the Mirror, Huffington Post, Metro and Fagburn.com.
The AJ has also been nominated for a raft of International Building Press (IBP) National Journalism awards, including Weekly Magazine of the Year and Digital Service of the Year.

The AJ also scored nominations for Tom Ravenscroft in the Multi-Media Journalist of the Year category, and technical reporter Laura Mark is up for Young Journalist of the Year. All the winners of the IBP awards will be announced on 21 November.
