Two members of the AJ editorial team have been nominated for top journalism prizes.
Richard and Ella are up for individual awards at the forthcoming Professional Publishers Association (PPA) Awards, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 29 June.
In the business media category, Richard has been shortlisted for Writer of the Year thanks to his in-depth feature on Hodder & Partners’ ill-fated National Wildflower Centre and stories on Patrik Schumacher’s leaked email to Zaha Hadid staff and the battle between Neo Bankside residents and Tate Modern.
Ella is nominated for Designer of the Year thanks to her startling and eloquent AJ cover of December 2016, summing up a year that most wished to forget.
AJ’s sister brands The Architectural Review and the World Architecture Festival are also nominated in the PPA’s Business Media Brand of the Year and Event of the Year categories respectively.
The Architectural Review’s Tom Carpenter has also been shortlisted for Business Media Designer of the Year.
