Anorak is proud to announce it has been selected as a finalist for the Quark 2011 Digital Magazine Awards.

#5 Magazine has been shortlisted in the competitive Lifestyle Magazine of the Year category with competition from amongst others Project Magazine and electric!

Last year’s awards attracted entries from 26 countries; including the world’s leading publishing houses (including FuturePlus, Hearst, UBM, IPC Media, Time and Redwood); Bluechip brands (including Mazda, Sky, ASDA, KLM and Vodafone) the industry’s stand-out editors, designers, photographers and writers.

Commenting on the selection Rik Sellers said “being selected as a finalist in the Digital Magazine Awards is a great achievement and is testament to all the work that has gone into transforming #5 magazine over the last few months. The Kindmags multiplatform publishing system has transformed #5 and Apple’s Newsstand has already brought us tens of thousands of new readers. The Digital Magazine Awards has really established itself and this year’s entrants are from the who’s who of digital publishing. We’re in very good company but we would love to go one further and pick up the award next month”

Once again this year’s awards will be judged by a panel of leading industry experts and winners will be announced at the awards evening on 14th December.
