Influence named 'Best Magazine' at 2018 Memcom Awards

Influence - the CIPR's exclusive member magazine - has been awarded 'Best Magazine for a Professional Association' for the second successive year at the Memcom Awards. 

The trailblazing magazine, produced by Think Publishing, saw off competition from the Royal College of Surgeons and the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys to claim its fifth award since its launch in 2016. Judges praised the magazine as "aspirational" and applauded its
 "clear purpose". 

Influence built on the success of its impressive debut year with a series of exceptional editions showcasing the value of public relations for clients, employers and the public. Cutting edge analysis of industry trends, as well as in-depth features with the likes of George Osborne and Arianna Huffington, helped strengthen Influence's reputation as the industry’s most in-demand magazine.

The CIPR marketing team also received a highly commended award for the Institute's Membership Means More campaign in the 'Best Marketing Campaign' category, while Think Publishing's Gaby Lane was named 'Best Newcomer'.

Influence has developed a lot in its first two years and to win the Memcom award for the second year in a row shows how the magazine continues to set the standard for thought-provoking articles across the amazing business of communications.
