2023 Church Magazine Competition

Entries are now open for an annual competition run by the Association for Church Editors (ACE), to find Britain’s best church magazine. This is an opportunity to celebrate and support the work of church editors and their editorial teams.

Magazines will be assessed by a panel of judges who will award points for different aspects, including cover design, headlines and clarity of the Christian message. The Gold Award winner will receive a John King Trophy to be held for one year, and Silver and Bronze Awards will receive an inscribed trophy to keep, along with a certificate. There will also be a prize giving ceremony to celebrate the winners, with more details on the date and venue to be announced soon.

Please note the competition closes on Monday 3rd April. To enter and for further information about the competition, please visit the ACE Awards 2023 webpage here.
