Golf Punk and OSM head awards shortlist

Jason Cowley, Editor of the Observer Sports Monthly, and Tim Southwell, his counterpart at new-launch Golf Punk, head the category shortlists in the British Society of Magazine Editors’ awards, announced yesterday.

The awards, together with the Society’s Mark Boxer Award and Editors’ Editor of the Year will be presented at the London Hilton on Tuesday, November 14.

Under consideration in other categories, Andy Robinson, of Nikon Pro (surely a favourite with many of the SJA’s photography members), is shortlisted in the contract magazines category.

Ian McLeish, the Editor of the Haymarket-produced consumer contract United Review – Manchester United’s matchday programme – is also short-listed.

In the men’s magazines category, Men’s Fitness (edited by Peter Muir) and Men’s Health (Morgan Rees) are both nominated for consideration.
