2015-11-17
Our own Matthew Todd took out the coveted Editor of the Year - Men's Brand award at the prestigious annual ‘magazine Oscars’ the British Society of Magazine Editors Awards last night. Todd beat out a field in his category that included GQ editor Dylan Jones, Martin Robinson of ShortList and Mark Hedley of Square Mile. In giving Matthew the award, judges - made up of a panel of magazine editors - said that "The winner’s title was honest, emotionally connected with its readers and genuinely passionate about helping them." 12227808_10153593950987559_6549694109465230919_n "That's the nicest compliment I could ever get for my work on the magazine," Todd said after the win. "Thank you to all of the team here at Attitude - particularly our Managing Director Mike Buckley and Deputy Editor Cliff Joannou, whom I couldn't do it without. I’m very proud that Attitude can hold it’s own against the biggest magazines in the country’. https://twitter.com/bsmeinfo/status/666388866144825344 The Men's Brand win was one of two nominations for Attitude at last night's awards, with a nod in the Innovation / Brand-Building Initiative category for the inaugural Attitude Pride Awards, which shone a light on everyday heroes within the LGBT community. https://twitter.com/bsmeinfo/status/666388866144825344 Attitude is the only gay magazine to have ever been nominated for a BSME Award. Previous editor Adam Mattera won Men’s magazine Editor of the Year in 2005, as did Todd in 2011.
