BSME Rising Star Awards

The winners of the first-ever British Society of Magazine Editors’ Rising Stars Awards were announced at 1901 Restaurant at Andaz on Monday. John Smigielski, Axon’s Editorial Director, presented the award for best digital designer. He is seen here with Diane Kenwood, the current Chair, and the winner of the best digital designer category, Anja Wohlstrom of New Statesman. ‘More than 200 rather rowdy journalists and designers – thank goodness some things don’t change – gathered at this smart restaurant in the City,’ says John, ‘to drink a glass or two of something sparkly and, obviously, to find out if they had won.’
