Best Membership Publication 2019
We were absolutely thrilled to win the 2019 PPA Independent Publisher Membership Publication of the Year Award for CountryStore Magazine. The twice-yearly glossy that we produce for Mole Valley Farmers was up against extremely stiff competition from the likes of National Trust Scotland, British Heart Foundation and The Arts Society.
The magazine gives Mole’s 50,000+ members a smorgasbord of engaging features which celebrate rural life and cover farming, smallholding, equestrian interests, food, gardening, history, pets and more. It showcases new products by seamlessly dovetailing them with editorial features.
Feedback from the judges was as follows: ‘The judges highlighted this as a very strong entry with impressive supporting documents, great sales and empirical evidence that was really positive. This is a top quality magazine with great attention given to the design and readership. A winning entry that met all the criteria; well done to everyone involved in winning the PPA Independent Publisher Membership Publication of the Year Award.’
