Please note, for 2018 we have consolidated our European awards into two programs. The Publishing Awards Europe are no longer a separate program anymore, but instead the categories can be found as a part of the Digiday Media Awards Europe.
Condé Nast Britain won three awards at the inaugural Digiday Publishing Awards Europe on Oct. 4, coming away with awards for innovation in social media and branded content categories.
The Digiday Publishing Awards Europe recognize the best digital publishing innovation by publishers, brands, agencies and technology platforms in the European market.
The 111-year-old media company won Best Use of Instagram for British Vogue’s Instagram feed @britishvogue, Best Use of Facebook Live for British GQ and Best Branded Content Program for the video series “Two Whiskies With” for client Haig Club.
The BBC and Dennis Publishing had two wins each. BBC Politics’ Brexit Bot won Best Use of a Messenger Bot and BBC One’s Snapchat won Best Use of Snapchat. Dennis Publishing won Best E-Commerce Strategy for its acquisition of BuyaCar.co.uk and Best Technology Innovation for its partnership with marketing technology company Sourcepoint to connect with Dennis readers using ad blockers.
