 “These awards mean a great deal to us. It is an important benchmark vis-à-vis our competition. Our focus is on innovation, so we really value comparisons with other publishers, and evaluation by industry experts is an important validation of our strategy.”

 "Being nominated for a Digital Media Award is a great tribute to the work that we do. And to win – in a field of such talented nominees from across Europe – is an honour. Awards are an important way for any team to get recognition for their efforts from industry peers, colleagues and senior bosses. These award are a useful opportunity to connect face to face with journalists, publishers and producers from across Europe."
