London, 20.11.14: At the prestigious Campaign Media Awards last night, Time Out was named “Print sales team of the year”, beating off stiff competition from the other finalists ESI Media (The Evening Standard) and The Guardian.
The London sales team have had a fantastic year, increasing revenues by over a third, and gaining market share at the expense of other competing free titles Shortlist, Stylist and Sport. With new business from blue-chip brands like Nike, BA, GSK, Sainsbury’s and Rightmove, allied with award-winning creative solutions, Time Out has provided an unbeatable way of connecting advertisers with our passionate and engaged audience.
In awarding the prize, the judges praised Time Out for the way we’ve reinvigorated an iconic brand, and creating solutions that work effectively for both audience and advertisers.
The judging panel included
Jonathan Allan, sales director, Channel 4
Zoe Bale, head of press – Amplifi, Denstu Aegis Network
Vanessa Clifford, deputy chief executive, Newsworks
Simon Redican, chief executive officer, National Readership Survey
Stuart Taylor, chief executive officer, Kinetic
David Wilding, UK planning director, Twitter
Dominic Williams, head of trading, Dentsu Aegis Network
