Let’s face it – whoever said it’s the taking part that matters most was just plain wrong.  Winning is everything!

That’s why we love awards.  They give us the chance to compete with the best and achieve the recognition we deserve.  And what could be more rewarding than seeing the new names you’ve trained and nurtured walking away with a top industry prize?

You know you have every chance of seeing your new editors, section editors, journalists and designers sweep the boards at the PTC New Journalist of the Year Awards because you saw their potential, mentored them and gave them opportunities that stretched them and built their confidence. 

So now, you want to see them acknowledged as rising stars in the industry – and see your title beat off the competition!

This year's masterclass consisted of three exciting sessions led by well-known industry professionals. Topics such as the future of print, cross-platform publishing and the changing needs of readers were tackled. If you weren't there, here's what you missed - 


What do high heels, building design and thrashing rock music have in common? No, not an architect dressed in drag at a Metallica gig.
Look editor, Ali Hall, Amanda Baillieu, editor, BD – the leading weekly title for architects, and Scott Rowley, editor in chief, Classic Rock and Metal Hammer, perhaps only have one thing in common….. they all know their (very different) audiences probably better than their grannies. Hear how they have successfully converted fickle consumers into loyal readers, who are in it for the long haul.

“The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”
This is what Mark Twain said after hearing that his obituary had been published in the New York Journal, when he wasn’t in fact dead! You may have heard similar rumours about the explosion of digital publishing leading to the downfall of print. John Sanderson, director, Environmental Affairs UK, at UPM - a global forest products group and Alison Carter, Editor, Printing World and PrintBuyer, shed some light on how, with some thought for the environment, print magazines are far from pulp.

From fast cars to boys’ toys, take a lesson from the pimp daddies in suping up your magazine brand.
Top Gear editor, Michael Harvey, and Tom Dunmore, editor in chief, Stuff – the world’s best selling gadget mag - share how they’re winning the race in building multi-platform super brands. So, whether it’s through print, RSS, podcasts or mobizines - find out which of the latest tactics will leave the competition eating dust.

And if you didn't join us in 2006 you also missed the PTC Masterclass -four fantastic sessions covering wide ranging topics led by senior industry figures. 

A-lists, blacklists and hotpants!

Empire editor Mark Dinning spends this session focusing on the Celebrity Interview drawing from seven years of his encounters with some of the biggest egos on the planet! Mark will cover how to draw out the most newsworthy and explosive quotes from your interviewee, the art of unlocking particularly awkward subjects, the etiquette of The Hollywood Junket, and how to ask those difficult questions without being blacklisted by agents and publicists. As a bonus there will also be exclusive, and no doubt invaluable, tips on how to survive an entire day in the pub with Colin Farrell and the perils of interviewing Angelina Jolie in hotpants. (Angelina being the one in the hotpants, obviously.)   

Pitch: hitch or ditch?

Magazines fail without consistently great and winning ideas generation.    In this session, Sara Cremer, editor, Eve, and Jim Douglas, editorial director, Future Publishing, explain why creativity is the lifeblood of magazines, explore the general principles of creative thinking and demonstrate tried and tested ways to kick start ideas, including reading your reader’s thoughts and finding that much needed inspiration in unlikely places.  

The good, the bad and the ugly

Heat editor, Mark Frith, and Soo Abram, editorial design manager at Reed Business Information, compare the design elements of business professional and consumer publishing. Including a before-and-after redesign sample, the team will demonstrate how things that look mediocre can be improved and evolved into a new and workable form. This hopes to be an informative and entertaining masterclass - the only dilemma being how to equate the front covers of Heat and Farmer's Weekly without mentioning udders...  

Mags, rags and riches

Drawing from their own experience two top editors guide you through key career development stages, from perfecting your CV to impressing at interviews and knowing which career move is best for you.  Sound advice is invaluable at any stage of a career, but even more when you are just starting out; Giles Barrie, editor, Property Week, and the 2005 PTC New Journalist of the Year, Stuart Hood, incoming editor, FHM, share their tips on getting ahead and getting noticed.
