We are pleased to announce the launch of the Fashion Monitor Journalism Awards 2014. The awards initiative, which is now in its second year, is the first of its kind to recognise excellence across fashion and beauty media. Previous winners include Stylist’s Alexandra Fullerton, ELLE’s Amy Lawrenson, GQ’s Dylan Jones and Business of Fashion’s Imran Amed. Online nominations, which launch on February 6, will be accepted from the entire industry, ensuring the awards are truly industry focussed. Last year’s judges included Hilary Alexander, London Evening Standard’s Maurice Mullen, WGSN’s Lauretta Roberts and Vogue’s Emily Sheffield, and this year’s high profile judging panel of industry experts will be revealed shortly. Including new categories such as International Journalist of the Year, the winners will be announced at an exclusive industry event in July – watch this space.
