We’re delighted to announce that our journal, Optometry Today (OT) has won a prestigious national award at the MemCom 2016 Awards. OT scooped the ‘Best Professional Association or Royal College magazine’ accolade, announced at an awards ceremony yesterday.
With fierce competition from other membership organisations, including the Federation of Small Businesses, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers and the Association of Accounting Technicians, the judges highlighted OT’s ‘classy and clean design and wide range of relevant, topical and educational content’.
OT Managing Editor, John White, said: “Winning the MemCom 2016 Award is fantastic. It was a highly competitive category which featured impressive member journals and magazines, so for the judges to pick OT as their outright winner is extra special. Last year we set ourselves the task of making OT – already a successful and popular journal with our members – even better. We embarked on full-scale redevelopment of the journal with our publishing partner Think. This included moving from a fortnightly to a monthly journal, and bringing in a raft of new content sections to reflect the interests and needs of members today – each with their own distinct design. To have this work recognised by our peers in the membership sector as 'best in class’ is a great feeling.”
