The winners of the 2013 Association of Online Publishers (AOP) Awards were unveiled last week in a prestigious ceremony held at the Camden Roundhouse. A total of 12 companies shared the trophies across 18 Awards categories, with Reed Business Information and Shortlist Media sharing the plaudits for most number of Awards received, taking home a total of 3 each.
Two brand new categories were introduced for 2013 and put out to public vote in the run up to the event, with Tom Cullen of Shortlist Media and Kaldor Ltd. scooping the awards for One to Watch – Individual and One to Watch – Business respectively. The third new category – for mobile and tablet innovation – was won by Reuters, while Outbrain won the 2013 Technology Partner Award.
“We would like to congratulate all of the winners and indeed the nominees who took part in the 2013 AOP Awards,” said John Barnes, chairman of the AOP. “The level of entries was this year the highest we have ever seen at the AOP and the range of winners across different categories highlights the dynamism of the fast-paced industry in which we operate. It was exhilarating to see the industry come out in such strong support of what is undoubtedly the most exciting and dynamic area of media.”
