Publication makes the cut for British Society of Magazine Editors’ 2022 Talent Awards

Research Professional News has been shortlisted for four of the British Society of Magazine Editors’ Talent Awards 2022.

The UK news team of Mićo Tatalović, Sophie Inge, Robin Bisson, Chris Parr and Fiona McIntyre has been included in the best section team category.

UK news reporters Sophie Inge and Robin Bisson have been shortlisted for the best B2B writer and best news writer awards respectively.

Daniel Cressey has made the cut for the best deputy editor award alongside deputy editors from The Observer Magazine, Pulse, National Geographic Traveller Food and Which? Money.

The BSME Talent Awards celebrate the “achievements and editorial creativity of individuals and teams…across all print, web and social platforms”.

“They’re about shining a light on the stars of our industry at all levels,” BSME says. “From editorial assistants to section editors, social media teams to designers, we believe that every individual and team responsible for delivering brilliant journalism that serves audiences and generates commercial success should be celebrated.”

The awards ceremony is set to take place in London on 28 June and has 23 categories in total.

The team was also successful in awards held last year, with Mićo Tatalović scooping the Medical Journalists’ Association 2021 specialist news story of the year.

In the same year, Robin Bisson was shortlisted for the best specialist journalism prize at the British Journalism Awards, and Sophie Inge for the best digital writer for B2B at the BSME Talent Awards.

Group editor Sarah Richardson was also shortlisted in both 2020 and 2021, as BSME editor of the year for trade and professional magazines.

Richardson said: “I’m delighted to see the talent, expertise and dedication of Research Professional News’s journalists recognised in this year’s BSME talent awards. The stories they have been shortlisted for were some of the most impactful in our sector last year, and it’s fantastic to see this work shortlisted in four categories, in great company with many very well-respected titles.”
