Even with the ever-shifting media landscape The Australian Magazine Awards (AMAs) have been hugely successful and well received, providing the Australian magazine publishers with the opportunity to be rewarded and recognised for their excellence and innovation.
Since this independent program launched in 2009 the Australian Magazine Awards have become credible, respected and vital to recognizing success within this field.
Year on year, Two de Force work diligently with AdNews reshaping the awards and categories to sync the AMAs with the industry; what it is doing and how it is working. This level of meticulousness ensures our event is a success each year and enjoyed by all who attend.
