Influence wins global award for 'fascinating content'

Influence - the Chartered Institute of Public Relations' (CIPR) member magazine - has been named Bronze Winner of the Best Print category at the prestigious International Content Marketing Awards

The magazine, which is available exclusively to CIPR members, attracted praise from the judges for its "surprising style and fascinating content".

The awards attracted over 450 entries from across 21 countries, making them the most competitive content marketing awards in the world.

Influence achieved industry-wide acclaim throughout 2016 for its thought-provoking opinion pieces and focus on professional standards, following its launch in January.

This is a very pleasing way to cap off the first year of Influence magazine and a perfect opportunity to thank the huge number of people who have made 2016 such a satisfying experience – from the editorial board, who have been there to provide guidance, the team at Think Publishing – we couldn’t have chosen better partners – and last but not least, all the contributors who have given Influence the character and content that make it what it is.

The news follows the results of a recent Lissted analysis, which revealed the Influence website as the third most influential content source for PR professionals, according to the number of unique influencer shares.
