ELLE wins best Editor and best Art Director at the BSME awards
The editorial year was rounded off in style last night as ELLE magazine was awarded an unprecedented two wins at the biggest ceremony on the calendar, the British Society of Magazine Editors awards.
For the second year running Lorraine Candy, ELLE Editor in Chief, won Editor of the Year praised by the high profile panel of journalist judges for "finding new icons, new people to talk about and new editorial approaches".
Marissa Bourke, ELLE's Creative Director, took home the award for Art Direction having "produced a magazine that was visually inspiring and lyrical. ELLE's innovative design has been the recipient of no less than six awards since 2008, taking ELLE's total wins in that time to an unrivalled eight.
"I am delighted ELLE has scooped two awards, it is a rare thing for a magazine to excel in both editorial and design so we feel really proud of ourselves", said Candy. "We set out to prove we were innovative and predictive, and we want to surprise readers every month with our new look covers and a new approach. It's wonderful to pick up an award for taking risks and being brave with content."
