Our award for best publisher user experience puts the spotlight on those publishers that strive to put their users at the heart of their service design with the simple aim of giving users easy access to their content.
The award builds on our ongoing commitment to drive forward innovation in the information industry and to make access to knowledge as easy as possible for end users.
Finalists will be given an opportunity to showcase their work in a 10 minute case study presentation at a webinar in March. The winner will be announced at our conference in London next March.
Any online publisher can apply so long as you can demonstrate how you’ve put the needs and experience of your users at the heart of changes to your digital services. Specifically, you’ll need to tell us how you’ve created a simple and easy journey to your content and increased user engagement.
