After more than a decade of representing the Australian beauty industry, Professional Beauty was honoured at the annual Bell Awards for business publishing excellence by winning B2B Magazine of the Year. Over 500 people from more than 50 national publishing organisations attended a lavish lunch at the Four Seasons hotel in Sydney to recognise the best in the business. James O’Loghlin, presenter of the ABC’s The New Inventors proved a well-chosen MC who managed to inject his own brand of print media humour into the afternoon’s proceedings.
Since their inception 13 years ago, the Bell Awards have been fiercely contended, with hundreds of entries representing over 30 categories of business publishing. Prior to winning the award, Professional Beauty, published by The Intermedia Group, realised its most successful year, with all six issues exceeding publishing expectations. We wish to thank everyone involved in the magazine’s progress over the years and pledge to continue delivering accurate, objective and educational information for the professional Australian beauty industry.
