3 Heralds wins national magazine award.
Amanda Hislop, editor of 3 Heralds, attended the national awards ceremony of the Association of Church Editors on 5 May in Coventry. She was delighted to accept a Certificate of Excellence on behalf of the magazine for ‘Appeal to the Wider Community’. The award was presented by Revd John Leach, Developing Discipleship Advisor and Trainer at the Diocese of Lincoln.
Amanda said, “It was a fantastic day with an opportunity to meet editors of church magazines from all over the country. There were many varied magazines to view and I was so pleased we won this particular category, as it reflects the aim of the magazine in reporting church activities as well as an outreach for the community. An added bonus in travelling up and down to Coventry in one day is there were no traffic jams on the motorways !”
John Farrow, Chairman of ACE, said to Amanda, “The judges were impressed with your magazine and even though competition for the top awards was very keen, they had no hesitation in picking you out as one of the winners”.
Amanda is celebrating her 4th year anniversary this month as editor of the magazine and would like to thank everyone for their contributions and support in making this such a successful publication.
