American Society of Magazine Editors introduces ASME next awards for journalists under 30

“We are proud to introduce the ASME Next Awards,” said Sid Holt, Chief Executive of ASME. “ASME has long been committed to fostering young talent—in fact, our Magazine Internship Program turns 50 next year. But the ASME Next Awards are something special—a chance to recognize the journalists who will shape the future of magazine media, both in print and online.”

The ASME Next Awards are open to any journalist under the age of 30. Candidates must be nominated by an ASME member and work full-time or freelance for an MPA-member print or digital publication. Four award winners will be chosen by a panel of judges chaired by Mark Jannot, Vice President, Content, National Audubon Society, and ASME President.

Sponsored by ASME in association with MPA—The Association of Magazine Media, the ASME Next Awards will be presented at the American Magazine Media Conference on February 2, 2016, the day after the Annual Ellie Awards Dinner, also sponsored by ASME.

FIPP wants to continue to discover and recognise those individuals under the age of 30 in media companies across the globe that are demonstrating outstanding talent and developing remarkable initiatives.

FIPP’s Rising Stars in Media list will recognise people who work in the industry – whether this is a full-time/part-time employee or a freelancer – and who in the past 12 months has proved to deliver above and beyond what was expected.
