The BV Magazine wins prestigious NMA’s Regional Publication of the Year 2024


We are thrilled to announce that The BV has been awarded the prestigious NMA’s Regional Publication of the Year 2024! This amazing accolade is a testament to the hard work, talent and passion of our entire team.

The competition for a 2024 Newspaper and Magazine award was incredibly fierce – 27 industry judges had assessed the 18 categories, which were hotly contested by some of the biggest names in the UK’s publishing industry. The Regional Publication of the Year shortlist was like a who’s who of local media, with The BV up against distinguished publications like Brighton’s local paper, Newsquest-owned The Argus, one of Ireland’s oldest newspapers, The Impartial Reporter, and Wales’ largest newspaper, The Western Mail. Being recognised among such company makes this achievement even more meaningful for such a small, independent team.

The judges commented that The BV demonstrated very clear objectives which were delivered in full, providing incredibly strong results. They noted our exceptionally high standard of social media engagement, and made particular note of the level of our achievement with such a tiny team.

The awards ceremony was held at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square in Mayfair on Wednesday, 23rd May (see all winners on the ACE website here). It was a night to remember, filled with celebration and recognition of excellence in journalism and publishing.

The London Marriott Grosvenor Square’s ballroom was filled with 300 people for the prestigious 2024 Newspaper and Magazine awards!

Most people are aware that at its heart, The BV is just a team of two – but we are supported tirelessly by a the collective effort of our talented writers every month (who were all carefully chosen initially for their excellence, but definitely kept around for their sense of humour). Each member of our team has contributed to making The BV a standout publication, and this honour belongs to every one of us.

Also, a big thank you to our readers and supporters for believing in us and inspiring us to strive for excellence every day. We are committed to continuing our tradition of delivering high-quality journalism and engaging content to our community. Here’s to celebrating this incredible milestone and looking forward to many more successes in the future!
