This award will be given to an art team that has made a real impact to the success of their magazine. Judges will be looking for original ideas and how these have been successfully translated to the pages of the magazine. We are also looking for any extra input the team provides and the creative management of resources.



Art department heads should submit three separate pieces of work. These may be stand-alone features or refer to a particular section of the magazine. Please note that the most senior member of the Art Team (Art Director / Creative Director) should complete this entry form on behalf of their team, but may not be listed as an entrant. Instead they should enter the Art Director of the Year category of the main BSME Awards.

They must have been published during the period 1 January to 31 December 2015.
Please note – the magazine editor should ratify each entry.

The judges will be looking for:

  • Quality of design
  • Originality of ideas

Please complete the form below and send it with the statement, pieces of work and payment to the BSME Office. Please send the completed entry form as a word document and include any digital links so they can be easily viewed. The supporting statement and material should be sent as one complete PDF either on a disc or USB stick, with a print-out on A4 paper. Please keep a copy for your records.

Either pay for the entry online (click here) or send a cheque made payable to the BSME with your entry. The entry fee is £75.00 for BSME members and £98.00 for Non-BSME members (to qualify for the BSME rate the art director must have been a member of the BSME during the period 1 January to 31 December 2015. If you had temporary membership from entering the main BSME 2015 Awards you must pay the non-member rate).
