Invitation from the Association for Church Editors (ACE)

The search is on for Britain's best church magazine. Entries are now invited for the annual competition run by the Association for Church Editors (ACE), which is an independent, not for profit organisation that celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. 

"Judging from the number of brochures and leaflets that land on our doormats and the array of magazines in newsagents, other organisations still value printed material," says Sally Churchus, Chair of the national organisation, "so we are keen to encourage church editors everywhere". 

For the coming 2024 competition, which closes on Tuesday 2 April, awards will be made for any size of magazine using colour printing. 

The Gold Award winner will receive the John King Trophy (below), to be held for one year, while Silver and Bronze Awards will receive an inscribed trophy to keep, together with a Certificate of Excellence for display. 

A panel of judges assesses each magazine, giving points for various aspects including cover design, headlines and clarity of the Christian message. 

The prize-giving will take place on Saturday 28 September in Westminster Central Hall, London, and is open to everyone. 

The meeting will include an address by our Keynote Speaker, Neil Pugmire, (author of 100 Ways To Get Your Church Noticed), and talks on various ways to improve church magazines.
