Your Favorite Cleans Up At PPA

Clash Magazine has cleaned up at the PPA Scotland awards, leaving the glitzy ceremony clutching the gongs for ‘Best Consumer Magazine’ and ‘Magazine Of The Year 2008’.

Held in Glasgow’s Radison Hotel, the PPA Scotland awards are designed to showcase and celebrate the very best of the Scottish magazine world. A nation that prides itself on its heritage of ground-breaking and astute journalism, competition as ever was fierce as newcomers fought with long established periodicals.

The awards celebrated Clash Magazine’s unique identity. An independent magazine that focuses on music, fashion, film and entertainment, Clash has become the magazine of choice for a discerning generation.

Collecting the awards on the night were two of Clash’s founding directors, John O’Rourke and Jon Paul Kitching. Commenting on this latest achievement, O’Rourke said: “Naturally we are thrilled and delighted to be named Magazine of the Year, and this gives us the motivation to keep driving the brand forward into 2009 and beyond.”

In London on the same night, Clash was nominated for Magazine of the Year at the Record Of The Day music and journalism awards, a title that it won in 2005.

Amongst the highlights of a stunning year for Clash were exclusive interviews with Oasis, Hot Chip, Duffy and many more, in addition to hosting events at Rock Ness, Get Loaded In The Park and beyond. With a new year on the horizon, we have already begun planning for an even better year ahead – make sure you join us, each step of the way!

Clash will be celebrating these awards and the success of 2008 with an end of year party on Wednesday 3rd December. The Clash Revue will take place at Proud Galleries in Camden, London, and will feature performances by Simian Mobile Disco, David Holmes, Buraka Som Sistema, XX Teens, Beardyman and Baddies.
