Despite the disruption that publishers faced last year, you still found the time to collectively submit 388 entries to the PPA Awards 2020. Being recognised and rewarded for your achievements felt more important than ever, and we were thrilled to be able to provide some positivity during a very challenging period.
The eligibility period for the PPA Awards 2021 runs Jan 1 2020 – Jan 31 2021, so we hope to see you enter again, submitting the successes you’ve achieved throughout the pandemic. We have a specific COVID-19 category, but all entries will be viewed through the lens of 2020’s challenges.
Check out last year’s winners below.
