We were recently announced as winners at the 2021 Independent Publishing Awards, in the category of Specialist Consumer Publisher of the Year. These awards are independently judged and we were up against some tough opposition. As you can imagine, we are delighted! This recognition extends to everyone who works with us; our authors, distributors, agents, freelancers and the many friends and partners who we work with.
We were lucky enough to attend the award ceremony itself, for many of us the first event of any kind since early 2020. The award judges had this to say:
David & Charles is another first-time winner at the Independent Publishing Awards. The arts and crafts specialist has flourished since a management buyout in 2019, with strengths including beautiful design and production, smart data-led marketing, outstanding customer service and good brand partnerships. They know their audience inside out and have very clear strategies for reaching them.
Thank-you to everyone who works with us and supports our business in many different ways, and thank-you to all our readers and customers, without whom this success would not be possible.
